I am a PhD student at Newcastle University, with my studentship funded by the the UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) through the Newcastle University Frontiers in Engineering Biology (NUFEB) project. While at Newcastle, my primary research area will focus on working the NUFEB synthetic biology team to enhance estrogen degradation in wastewater communities. My PhD project will be supervised by Professor Anil Wipat (co-supervisor, Centre for Bacterial Cell Biology and School of Computing Science) and Dr Russell Davenport (co-supervisor, School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences). Prior to starting my PhD, I completed four years of the MBBS Medicine programme (2010-2014) and intercalated on the MSc Synthetic Biology programme (2014-2015), both at Newcastle University. Following my PhD, I intend to return to the MBBS Medicine programme.
Ph.D. Computing Science, Newcastle University, UK, 2015-present.
In silico approaches to the analysis and design of micropollutant degradation function in wastewater communities.
MSc Synthetic Biology (distinction), Newcastle University, UK, 2014-2015.
Disseration Title: Evolutionary Algorithms in the Design of Synthetic Metabolic Networks.
Medicine, Newcastle University, UK, 2010-2014.
Have not completed the MBBS Medicine programme yet, and thus have no exit qualification.
During my PhD in Computing Science I will be working on my project; "In silico approaches to the analysis and design of micropollutant degradation function in wastewater communities".
