Chris Pudney, PI
Chris thinks big thoughts, 'helps' with experiments, doesn't make a mess.
Chris one day hopes to enter the Guinness book of records for the making the worlds smallest hand-made paper boat and to tre-flip a five stair.
Tony Kwok, PhD student 2015/2016
Tony's project explores the use of the fluorescence edge shift effect to detect novel information on protein structure and developing the understanding of structurally disorderd protein biophysics.
Current title: Paper mill
Titles held: Paper mill, Darkness visible, Red peril, Expert expresser
Rory Crean, PhD student 2016/2017
Rory is a student in the Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technology. His project involves developing novel protein engineering approaches to stabilise enzymes. Rory uses a hybrid computational/experimental approach to tackle his research question.
Current title: Paper Mill
Titles held: Mr Robot, Fundermental, Breaking bad, Mr Robot
Jade Hopkins, PhD student 2016/2017
Co-supervised in our Lab (PI, David Cole - Cardiff)
Current title: High pressure hero
Titles held: Red peril, High pessue hero
Dora Rasadean, PhD student 2017/2018
Dora is designing novel catalytic scaffolds based on dynamic combinatorial chemistry, applying the physical chemical rules we know from enzymology to a purely synthetic system. She is co-supervised by Dan Pantos.
Apart from the lab, I am a singer, love reading books and wander on early autumn.
Current title: Breaking bad
Titles held: Beaking bad
Sam Winter, PhD student 2017/2018
Sam is exploring the role of quinary enzyme structure in enzyme catalysis and if we can manipulate it for biocatalysis applications
Current title: Catalytically active
Titles held: Catalytically active
Sarah Hindson, PhD student 2018/2019
Sarah is studying the potential for engineering protein dynamics in enzymes as a new route to develop biocatalysis platforms.
Ben May, PhD student 2018/2019
Ben is working on applying artificial intelligence to identify microbes and drugs from spectral fingerprints.
