Having completed university, I joined Chronos Therapeutics, a biotech company interested in repositioning FDA/EMA approved drugs for neurodegenerative diseases. It was here that I was first introduced to the wonderful model organism C. elegans and its huge versatility in scientific and drug research.

Now working within the Behavioural Genomics group with support from Syngenta my work focuses on movement in C. elegans exposed to drugs. Specifically, with the aim of identifying the mode of action of uncharacterised drugs by their shared effect on movement in relation to know ones.
