Personal profile


I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of York investigating RNA-Capsid interactions in single stranded RNA viruses. My work focuses on the development of software packages for the analysis of X-ray hydroxyl radical RNA footprinting data. This data, when analysed, allows us to examine the secondary structure of RNA inside and outside of the viruses, with millisecond resolution. I have a PhD in Drug Discovery from the University of Manchester, in which I examined sequence-activity relationships in Antimicrobial Peptides.
