Dr. Susanne Stalford
Name: Dr. Susanne Stalford
Job Title: Senior Scientist
I’m Susanne, a senior scientist at Lhasa Limited. Prior to working at Lhasa, I received both a Masters and PhD in Chemistry from the University of Leeds, working on synthesising a novel carbohydrate and looking at its potential role in Mycobacterium tuberculosis. In February 2008, just two days after finishing in the academic lab, I started working for Lhasa.
Since working for Lhasa, I have worked on various projects. I started with developing Derek alerts for carcinogenicity before moving onto mutagenicity alerts and research into negative predictions. Since then I have worked on transformations for Zeneth and the initial development of Mirabilis. I now lead the development of Mirabilis, which provides a balance between both the technical and management aspects of the job, both of which I enjoy.
Outside of Lhasa, I have found a recent love of fitness so can usually be found in the gym or running around. I recently ran my first 10k race and am now training to run a half marathon. I also enjoy using my daughter as an excuse to go and watch kids movies, supporting sports teams from Salford (my home town) and going for a drink or two (usually gin and/or cocktails) with friends.
