PhD Student

Thesis title: Developing Tools to Study In Situ Crystallisation

Primary Theme: Correlated Imaging and Structural Biology

Franklin supervisors: Dr Marcus Gallagher-Jones and Dr Maud Dumoux

University: University of Leeds

University supervisor: Dr Sean Collins

Angharad’s project focuses on developing cryo-electron microscopy tools and techniques to study crystallisation mechanisms in situ.

Angharad graduated from Imperial College London with an MSci in Chemistry and Medicinal Chemistry. She carried out her final year project at the Francis Crick Institute investigating the activation of PADI4 proteins. During her degree she also completed a placement year at GSK Consumer Healthcare (Haleon) working in New Product Development. She is looking forward to exploring the various themes across the Rosalind Franklin Institute and working across disciplines to answer important questions.
