As research assistant within the Neil Hall group here in the department of Organisms and Ecosystems, I am assisting with projects relating to plant pathogens which infect our wheat and sugar beet crops.
Prior to working at the Earlham Institute, I was laboratory supervisor for the environmental department of Gardline Ltd. located in Great Yarmouth, UK. Prior to that I was production associate II at Qiagen Genomics located in Bothell, Washington, USA.
Previous to that I started out as laboratory assistant at J.G.Boswell Co. located in the heart of the San Joaquin Valley of California where I was born and raised. With the combination of my previous experience and formal education I bring with me a wealth of scientific experience including SOP development and laboratory technique skills as well as laboratory design and development.
