I am currently investigating a type six secretion system in commensal Neisseria spp.
I worked from 1996 - 2010 in industry labs, these included molecular biology research, forensics, genotyping and trace residue analysis. I came to Kingston to study after finally working in the NHS for a short while. After graduating from Kingston, I was offered a job as a Graduate Teaching Assistant. I am now a full time member of staff and studying for my Masters in reearch part time.
