2013-2016: PhD student at the University of Dundee. Ph.D project: Antigenic variation and monoallelic VSG expression in Trypanosoma brucei.
2012-2013: MRC funded PhD student at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London, UK. *In 2013 the Horn lab moved to the University of Dundee, Scotland.

Teaching / training
• Biology of Parasitism, Teaching assistant, Woods Hole Massachusetts, USA, August 2016. I assisted in running the Biology of Parasitism module where I was required to supervise both PhD students and Post-docs in trypanosome manipulation and molecular biology techniques. I also trained students in bioinformatics, including mapping Illumina sequencing data using my bespoke scripts and quantitative image analysis.
• Recombinant DNA Techniques & Advanced Practical Training in Molecular Biology courses, London School of Hygiene and Tropical medicine, 2012. I assisted in the running of two Masters Degree modules where I was required to supervise groups of Masters degree students and demonstrate molecular biology techniques such as PCR and molecular cloning.
• I have also trained several post-doctoral staff members in use of the UNIX command line and Illumina sequencing data analysis at the University of Dundee.
