Personal profile

Biography

Mahima Sharma is a Postdoctoral Research Associate working with Prof. Gideon Davies, FMedSci, FRS, at the York Structural Biology Laboratory. She completed her DPhil in Chemical Biology from the University of Oxford in 2015. Previously, Mahima worked on designing artificial metalloenzymes for C-C cross-coupling reactions under the supervision of Prof. Benjamin G. Davis, FRS, and also, on structural and biochemical studies of enzymes enabling chiral amine synthesis (IREDs and reductive aminases) in Prof. Gideon Grogan’s group.

Research interests

Her current project is focussed upon investigation of degradation pathways of sulfoquinovose (SQ), a sulfur containing sugar liberated from sulfolipids found in thylakoid membrane of chloroplasts in plants. These SQ catabolic pathways prevalent in the environment will further our understanding of how sulfur is circulated from this major organosulfur reservoir.
