I am currently a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Exeter in Dr Hans-Wilhelm Nuetzmann’s lab studying genome organization, epigenetic gene regulation, and chromosome topology in plants. Previously I worked as a postdoctoral research assistant at the University of Bath where I optimized a Hi-C protocol in Wheat. Prior to that, I completed a PhD in Molecular Biology at Durham University where I studied plant root development under drought stress using lab-based and computational methods.
