I hold an MChem (1st class, Hons) in chemistry from Cardiff University in Wales. I am an associate member of the Royal Society of Chemistry (AMRSC) as well as a member of the Microbiology Society.

Research interests

Building Periodic Desnsity-Functional Theory (DFT) and classical Molecular Dynamics (MD) models to study:

  • Mucoid biofilm matrix structure-function relationships.
  • Bacterial cell-cell signalling.
  • Spin inactive and active bio-inorganic complex binding.
