MRC-University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research
I am a first year PhD student at the MRC – University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research. I received my BSc in Evolutionary Biology from the University of Edinburgh in 2019, doing my dissertation project on the determinants of codon usage bias in Schistosoma mansoni. My research interests include phylogenetics, viral genomics, host-virus molecular interactions and genome compositional biases. My current research involves quantifying and exploring dinucleotide representation in the HIV-1 genome, as well as examining how endogenous viral elements might interact with the immune mechanisms of vertebrate hosts.
