I am a Senior Lecturer in Genomics and Cytogenetics. The courses I teach and the research in my lab are focused on how genetics impacts molecular pathology and healthcare to improve patient outcomes. To achieve this I work closely with NHS geneticists to develop our teaching curriculum, NHS work placements, and clinically focused research projects in functional genomics and clinical diagnostics.

  • PhD in Genome Stability and DNA Repair
  • Postgraduate Certificate in Clinical Cytogenetics
