Current interests

  • Metrology of antimicrobial action, discovery and resistance
  • Synthetic biology metrology and standardisation
  • Quantitative intracellular and extracellular measurements and materials


Andrea Briones received a BSc (Hons) in Biochemistry, following which she worked in P&G for a few years in flavour and fragrance development. Later, Andrea completed her MRes in Molecular Biology, studying novel gene-gene interactions in the jasmonate signalling network. In 2016, she obtained a PhD in Biochemistry from Royal Holloway, University of London for research involving the design of Salmonella atypical fimbriae (Saf) pilus proteins, establishment of affinity-enrichment systems to capture Saf pilus specific binding partners and the identification of these by mass spectrometry.

In 2017, Andrea joined NPL to focus on developing and applying innovative methods and metrology to address the challenges of antimicrobial resistance and synthetic biology.
