I completed my PhD at the University of Sheffield studying the repair of DNA damage in yeast. Following my PhD research I trained and subsequently worked as a Clinical Scientist for the Sheffield Diagnostic Genetics Service (SDGS) located at the Sheffield Children’s Hospital. In this role my main area of interest was the genetic diagnosis of haematological malignancies, in particular leukaemia classification and prognosis using cytogenetic diagnostic methods. In 2011 I accepted a postdoctoral research position and returned to the University of Sheffield. This research aimed to develop a highly sensitive label-free DNA detection system using gold nanotechnology and surface plasmon resonance. In my current role as a University Lecturer I draw on my academic research experience and clinical expertise to train students in human genetics and genetic diagnosis.
