Personal profile

Research profile

Amy Yewdall is a curious postdoc in the Bio-Organic Chemistry group at the Department of Biomedical Engineering. Her research interests are focussed on harnessing the functionality of proteins to create responsive biohybrid systems, such as protein-based nanostructures and artificial cells. In particular, her current research aims to imbue biological features into coacervate-based artificial cells, and to study how enzymes function in these novel environments.

Academic background

Amy Yewdall studied Biochemistry at the University of Cambridge (United Kingdom), where she received both her BA and MSci degrees in 2012. She then pursued her PhD at the University of Canterbury (New Zealand), where she cultivated a passion for harnessing protein self-assembly to create responsive nanostructures for use in new contexts. Amy obtained her doctorate in 2017, and joined the van Hest group, where her expertise in protein engineering, enzymatic assays, structural biology and bionanotechnology, equips her with a fresh biological perspective towards various projects.
