I did my undergraduate degree at the University of St Andrews but was drawn to the group by Geoff's talk at the 2011 Synbio student symposium here in Glasgow. A summer project here on dynamic combinatorial chemistry was followed by a return to St Andrews to finish my degree with an honours project in protein structure and function under Prof. Jim Naismith. I'm fascinated by the underlying chemistry of life and how artificial chemistry can model the processes that might have led to its origin. My main focus is to find and possibly invent interesting chemistry to put into both droplet microfluidics and the macro-scale dropletbot. Outside the lab I might be found doing historical fencing, often with a certain other group member.
