About me

I am a post-doctoral researcher in the lab of Ana Texeira. I am originally from Canada and have come to Sweden via the UK where I completed my PhD. My research includes work in areas such as DNA nanotechnology, protein-DNA conjugation, protein biochemistry, and atomic force microscopy.

Research description

I am investigating the effect of varying the stoichiometry and nanoscale spatial organization of insulin peptides on downstream signalling mediated via the insulin receptor. To do so, I am using DNA origami structures to position insulin peptides with nanometre precision.
