Personal profile


I started my PhD at the Centre for Enzyme Innovation in October 2019 under the supervision of Professor Andy Pickford. To tackle the issues of plastic waste, I have worked on genetically engineering the yeast species Pichia pastoris to produce industrially relevant quantities of plastic-degrading enzymes. I have then further characterised these enzymes using molecular techniques such as Differential Scanning Calorimetry. My aim is to use P. pastoris to produce and modify plastic-degrading enzymes for industrial scales of plastic degradation.


I completed a BSc in Biochemistry at the University of Portsmouth in 2018 with a final year Erasmus project in the University of Vigo focused on Fluorescent In-situ Hybridisation (FISH) of chromatin in cancerous bivalve cells. I then completed a MSc in Biotechnology in the University of Portsmouth with distinction.
