Simon

Simon studied for his BSc Hons in Biochemistry at the University of Bristol. After completing his PhD in Biochemistry at the University of Birmingham, he took up post-doctoral positions in the USA. During this time, Simon worked on phospholipase D-mediated and phosphoinositide-regulated vesicle trafficking, using the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisae as a model organism.
 
Simon returned to the UK to join Professor Wakelam’s laboratory as a senior staff scientist responsible for managing the lab, and supervising students and staff, whilst continuing his research on phospholipase D and phosphoinositide-regulated cellular processes. 
 
Simon regularly supervises vising A level, undergraduate, work experience and Erasmus+ students, and helps lead the Institute’s delivery of an annual 8-10-week lab-based practical “Protein Challenge Project” to a local college (Cambridge Academy of Science and Technology – a University Technical College). He enjoys being an active member of the Graduate, equality4success, and Public Engagement committees
