Biography

I am currently a Teaching Fellow in Biochemistry based in the Faculty of Life Sciences at Sussex University. After completing a first degree in Natural Sciences at Cambridge University, UK, I remained in the department of Zoology there and stayed on to complete my PhD in the field of evolutionary developmental biology. Following that, I pursued a research career in the field of developmental biology, specialising in the evolution of vertebrate novelties such as the origins of the head and neural crest. During this time I took on increasing teaching responsibilities, and, discovering that I enjoyed teaching more than research, applied for a teaching position at Sussex University.
