Profile

My undergraduate thesis was entitled: ‘Assessing the Influence of Biogeography on Actinomycete Secondary Metabolite Production Using Comparative Metabolomics’, which involved using soil samples from varying depths around Scotland and Antarctica to investigate the metabolites produced by the bacteria that was isolated using various techniques. I had a couple of months of lab experience during Summer 2014, in which I set up the bacterial library used for my thesis, and additionally by other researchers of the Microbiology Department at the Scottish Association for Marine Science.

Current research

Investigating the role of viruses in methanol production in the ocean.
