I am a lecturer in Bioinformatics at St. Georges University of London and have research interests ranging from human genomics, rare-diseases and population genetics. I am particularly interested in new genetic technologies and their applications, including, whole-exome sequencing, whole-genome sequencing, genetic mosaicism detection and functional genomics.
I have a broad teaching portfolio and contribute lectures, worhshops and supervise project students on both the BSc Biomedical Sciences and MSc Genomic Medicine courses.
Prior to SGUL, I worked at UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology, where I was developing new methods in the ‘next-generation sequencing’ era to study the genetic landscape of human neurological disease. Prior to this, I was a post-doctoral research fellow at the Institute of Cancer Research, London, and researching into germline predisposition to a variety of tumor types.
