I am bi and I am a postdoc researcher in immunology.//


I’m a postdoc at the Babraham Institute in Cambridge, UK, and I completed my PhD at the University of Glasgow in 2019. I’m interested in the molecular mechanisms that lead to pathologies like cancer and chronic inflammatory diseases. In particular, I study a post-translational modification called ubiquitination that has many cellular outcomes, and may be a potential therapeutic target for a number of diseases.

I only recently came out as bi since finishing my PhD but have received nothing but love and support since. I want to make other LGBTQ+ people in STEM feel as accepted as I do so if I can provide support to anyone navigating their coming out journey, especially if it’s later in life like me, then please reach out.
