I have been a post-doc in the lab since February 2015 and am studying the genes regulating sleep in Drosophila. Prior to this, I completed an undergraduate degree in Zoology and an MRes in Medical and Molecular Biosciences, both at Newcastle University. I then moved to Paris and worked in the lab of Prof. Frederic Marion-Poll in Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), where I completed my PhD in Neurobiology. More specifically, I studied taste interactions and the neural pathways underpinning feeding behaviour in fruit flies.
