Non-scientific interests: I am keen sportsman who really enjoys cycling, running and swimming. I am currently training to complete my first Ironman distance triathlon in Nice, France in 2020. Otherwise I love mountaineering and getting out into nature.
Brief Bio: My Phd was a collaboration between the Holdsworth and Theodoulou labs at the University of Nottingham and Rothamsted Research respectively, looking to elucidate the role for PROTEOLYSIS1, an E3 ligase in the N-degron pathway in Arabidopsis thaliana. The major outcomes of my thesis are presented in this manuscript and have been developed by members of my group. I am currently working in an industrial biotechnology company as a scientist optimising the use of Gluconacetobacter diazotrophicus as a bio-fertiliser to ease global reliance on nitrogen fertilisers in agriculture.
