Postdoctoral Research Associate

Richard is a Postdoctoral Research Associate working with Prof. Gideon Davies, FMedSci, FRS, at the York Structural Biology Laboratory. He moved to York following a PhD at the University of Birmingham, where he investigated the c-di-GMP signalling network of Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus under the guidance of Dr. Andrew Lovering. He has continued his interest in signalling networks and post-translational modifications at York, and is actively investigating the O-GlcNAc modification as well as other key signalling pathways. Primarily a structural biologist, Richard also employs both biophysical and biochemical techniques to probe the enzymology of sugar processing enzymes.
