I gained my PhD in the Insect virus research group(IVRG), which provided me with exstensive knowledge of Baculoviruses and surrounding techniques that include imaging techniques, cloning, cell culturing as to name a few. I have since continued working with IVRG as a postdoctoral researcher where a large focus of my work has been optimising protein expression using baculoviruses.
