Personal profile

Research interests

Lipidomics, 3D-printing, fundamental studies of amphiphile phase behaviour and biological assays of protein activity in the presence of lipids and DNA.

Currently projects of interest are; 

- understanding how cells regulate their fat and lipid composition and how this affects the activity of membrane interacting proteins.

- exploring 3D-printing applications at the interface of the chemical and biological sciences. One of the attractive ideas here is the ability to make our own lab equipment, particularly for preliminary studies and for outreach activities.

- modelling the activity of lipid biosynthetic enzymes in crowded molecular environments such as the cell nucleus.
