Personal profile


I am the Senior Technical Specialist for the Magnetic Measurements technical platform in the Faculty of Science and Engineering. I have over 20 years experience of biomolecular NMR, using it to determine protein structures, dynamics and interactions. My research focus is the mechanism of phosphoryl transfer enzymes, and intrinsically disordered proteins involved in cell signalling and disease.
