I joined the University of Leeds as a postdoctoral research fellow in Dr E. Zeqiraj's group in December 2016.
I graduated with a BSc in Biochemistry from the University of Surrey (2007) and obtained a PhD in Structural Biology from the University of Leeds (2012).
My first postdoctoral position was undertaken at the John Innes Centre (2012-2016) where I worked on the structural biology of host-pathogen interactions and virus assembly.
My research is focused on the regulation and control of ubiquitin signalling.
Specifically I am interested in how deubiquitlyation is carried out by members of the deubiquitylase enzyme (DUB) families.
These enzymes often function as part of large multi-protein complexes and I investigate how these complexes assemble and function together and the mechanisms by which they are controlled.<h4>Research projects</h4> <p>Any research projects I'm currently working on will be listed below.
