Research Blurb: 
I am a biochemist by training. My specialisation is in anaerobic enzymology and metabolism. i have worked on amino acid catabolism in mesophiles and extremophiles, protein purification, protein spectroscopy, CoA biochemistry and hexane degradation from 2005-12. At the Spormann lab, i am working on the heterologous overproduction of the vcrA (reductive dehalogenase) in E. coli with the aim of obtaining pure protein for crystallisation trials.
