|Research Postgraduate (PhD) in the Department of Biosciences
Structural and biochemical characterisation of DNA Topoisomerases
Graduate in Bs.c. (Hons) Microbiology and Pharmacology at University of Strathclyde in 2023 with a dissertation on Marine Actinomycetes as source of novel antibiotic compounds.At Durhan University research involves exploiting the structure of GyrA n-terminus with CcdB to investigate the interactions of the CcdA/B toxin-antitoxin system with gyrase and potentially discover novel antimicrobial approaches,such as using selective mutagenesis to remarkable amino-acid residues and individuate drug binding pockes within the gyrase-CcdB structure that can be utilised as antimicrobial targets.
