Biography

I graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Biology from the University of Portsmouth and continued at the University for my Master’s course (MRes).  I am currently working on the roles of variant histones in gene regulation as a PhD student.

Research

Histones and their variants provide many important functions through their involvement with DNA.  I am interested in how histone variants control transcription and how they are involved in expression of genes during early development.
