Sam grew up in rural Lincolnshire and completed his Master of Chemistry (MChem) at Durham University (2019). His Master’s Research Project, supervised by Matteo, used molecular dynamics to look at the protein interactions with lipid bilayers in the context of the Aerolysin pore-forming toxin.
Sam was accepted onto the SOFI2 CDT program in September 2019 which has enabled him to re-join the group in 2020 to look at the applications of deep learning methods with respect to the analysis and exploration of a proteins conformation landscape.
