Who I am…
I am a concerned scientist who is hoping to bring some clarity to the confusing news we see around COVID-19. My expertise is in ‘chemical biology’, which is an emerging discipline that sits at the interface of the chemistry and biology fields. I currently hold a Fellowship at the University of Oxford Department of Pharmacology. I have a master’s degree in medicinal chemistry, a PhD in biochemistry, and 7 years’ post-doctoral research experience in cancer research and antibiotic drug discovery.
The aim of this blog is only to aid understanding of our current situation (to explain the ‘why‘ as I see it), not to provide new practical guidance or tips. My advice is, and will always be, to follow the guidance of experts, the government and the NHS.
