As head of the ancient biomolecules laboratories at the University of Manchester, my interests revolve around the use of ancient proteins. This was initially in their application to human impacts on biodiversity in the past through to the present, supported by a NERC fellowship. More recently, through a Royal Society University Research and Senior Research fellowship enabled me to dedicate more time to investigating the information content of the bone proteome, with a particular interest in protein decay in the extracellular matrix that spans forensic, archaeological and palaeontological applications through to better understanding modern repair mechanisms.
