Personal profile


Wellcome Early-Career Fellow in Chemical Biology / FBMH / Division of Pharmacy & Optometry

My research uses selection methods including mRNA display and DNA-encoded libraries and innovative chemical biology tools to identify novel ligands for challenging protein targets. My vision is to perform these selections in native cellular environments, enabling access to membrane protein targets and large protein complexes.
