Group Leader

Professor of Cancer Biophysics at the University of Sheffield Division of Clinical Medicine in the School of Medicine & Public Health.


I received a BSc Biochemistry degree from the University of Wales – Aberystwyth in 2006 then commenced a PhD at the MRC National Institute for Medical Research/University of London. My thesis focused upon the biochemical and biophysical characterisation of DNA helicases. At the end of my PhD, I was awarded an EMBO Long Term Fellowship to move to the LMU–Munich to work on single molecule studies with myosin motors. After 3 years I relocated to the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry with a research focus on genome organisation. I then established my research group at the University of Kent in 2015 when I gained the MRC Career Development Award.
