Eloise O’Connor

Eloise completed her undergraduate degree at Imperial College London in Biochemistry in 2019. As part of this she completed a year in research studying calibration techniques used in Ion-Mobility Mass Spectrometry under Professor Konstantinos Thalassinos at University College London. This work was published in Rapid Communications in Mass Spectrometry in 2019. Her final year project was supervised by Dr John Heap working on the design and construction of an orthogonal expression system in E. coli to circumvent metabolic burden during combinatorial metabolic pathway implementation.

Eloise joined the Micklefield lab in 2021 funded by the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in BioDesign Engineering to work on synthetic biology approaches for re-assembling biosynthetic pathways in heterologous host strains.
