My research focusses on understanding how bacterial cytoplasmic membrane is utilised as a major organisation determining cellular structure, and how the membrane itself is internally organised.

The Centre for Bacterial Cell Biology (CBCB) in the Institute for Cell and Molecular Biosciences at Newcastle University is at the cutting edge of bacteriological research worldwide. The exceptional infrastructure, and the unique scientific environment with a strong focus on bacterial cell biology made CBCB my first choice for a place to establish my independent research career and group.

Securing first a Faculty Fellowship and then a Newcastle University Research Fellowship has been essential for my transition from research associate to independent researcher. My Faculty Fellowship funded my position and provided a small consumables budget which allowed me to continue my research independently. This fellowship was crucial in allowing me to finish and publish ongoing research and prepare a successful application for the highly competitive Newcastle University Research Fellowship scheme. This scheme has given me a 5 year independent position, a consumables budget and a fully funded PhD studentship.

My time as a research fellow has so far resulted in 5 publications including one in Nature Communications and another in PLoS Genetics.
