Kerianne is a mature student who joined Sci-Phy after leaving teaching. She had previously attended The College of the Holy Cross and The University of Texas at Austin in her native United States for her undergraduate and masters in Chemistry before gaining qualified teaching status in the UK. With a background in Biochemistry, previous synthetic chemistry and microbial research experience, the multi-disciplinary approach of the Sci-Phy programme was a perfect fit. Kerianne has an interest in the human microbiome, understanding how it interacts with disease states, and using this knowledge to improve treatment outcomes.
Her PhD is 'Novel Enzymatic Approaches for Studying Protein Methylation Levels in Cells'
