About Me

I grew up in the North-East of England, studied in the USA, and moved to Sweden in 2011. I studied Biochemistry and Environmental Biogeochemistry, then obtained my doctorate in Carbohydrate Enzymology.

I’m passionate about teaching and research on environmental protection, sustainable development, and new innovations in biotechnology.

Outside of work, you’ll usually find me reading a novel or walking in the Swedish woodlands.

Academic work

I am a Researcher at KTH, Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. I perform research in biochemistry and microbiology, and I teach on our biotechnology degree programmes.


I write about biotech and the environment for online outlets such as Massive Science. I also publish research in peer-reviewed academic journals – find links on my professional webpage.

This site

I use this site to gather my writing together, and as an occasional blog of academic life. Check my professional webpage for updates on academic publications and my teaching.
