I am Business Development Officer at Quadram Institute Bioscience. I work in the Business Development team to develop new opportunities for our researchers. This is achieved through helping commercial research progress. In my role, I work to reinforce existing relationships and establish new ones outside the Higher Education sector. In the Business Development team we aim to increase knowledge exchange, generate impact, identify opportunities for collaborative research and increase funded research from relevant external bodies.

Prior to joining Quadram, I completed my PhD in Chemistry in the area of Industrial Biocatalysis at the University of York. My research focused on the study of proline hydroxylases and their potential for the production of chiral pharmaceutical precursors.
