Brief bio: I completed my undergraduate Master of Physics degree at the University of York in 2009 and went on to pursue a DPhil in Condensed Matter Physics at the University of Oxford where I developed new hybrid protein-DNA nanotechnology, harnessing natural protein machines with DNA nanostructures. In 2013 I returned to York as a Postdoctoral Research Associate with Professor Mark Leake designing and building new single-molecule microscopes and analysis software. I have used these new tools in a variety of projects spanning nanotechnology, biology and health. In 2017 I was awarded an independent fellowship at the Centre for Future Health at York to develop metabolic nanosensors.
