Sheiliza is a post-doctoral research fellow in the Russell lab. She received her doctoral degree from University College London in chemistry. Her research focuses on the modification of therapeutically relevant proteins and their structure-activity relationships. Combined with experimental work, Sheiliza uses molecular modeling techniques to gain further insight into the protein's structural features that can impact protein modification with the aim to rationally and predictably design protein-polymer conjugates.

Discovery at the rich interface of chemistry, biology, and material science to incorporate
biological molecules and polymers for the creation of multifunctional materials.
