Research Interests

I investigate how proteins work and assemble using chemical and structural biology approaches incorporating native mass spectrometry and protein crystallography. I have a particular interest in the enzymes involved in glycan biosynthesis, and alongside this, fundamental interests in the technical workings of the methodologies I employ.
