The role of actin during synapse formation
I started my MRes in Biochemistry in Davis lab in 2020. I’m working on the role of actin during synapse formation. I am part of Linacre College.
I am working on understanding how mRNA regulates mRNA encoding actin binding proteins during activity-dependent synapse formation in Drosophila neuromuscular junctions. I am also interested in developing computational methods to model biological processes.
Before joining, I completed my BSc in Computer Science and Biology at McGill University. In my Honour’s project, I applied unsupervised clustering and supervised regression algorithms to predict spatial localisation of samples in human substantia nigra and putamen with RNA microarray expression data.
In my spare time, I write for Oxford Science Journalism: https://oxsciencejournalism.wixsite.com/sciencejournalism. I also do Bob Ross paintings sometimes.
