Starch breakdown in the digestive tract

I graduated with a degree in biochemistry in 2018 just before starting my MSc in molecular biology and biochemistry by research. Straight after completing my MSc I started on the NRPDTP CASE studentship at QIB.

My previous research has been focused on screening plants for antimicrobial properties. My current research is investigating the interactions between fibre and polyphenols and how this impacts the colonic microbiota.
