BSc, MSc, PhD, RSS


Genetic Epidemiologist

I am working in the CKB to investigate translational applications of human multi-OMICs information to elucidate the aetiology of disease and help guide drug development in areas of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) by applying human genetics (e.g. through Mendelian randomisation) together with machine learning and advanced epidemiological techniques (personalised medicine).  

I undertook a BSc and MSc degree in Nutrition Science. During my PhD, Nutrition Epidemiology, I examined large national prospective studies and nutritional records within the context of NCDs and related features at the Academy of Science. Alongside PhD training, I investigated the role of modifiable risk factors on risk of NCD mortality. I discovered my passion for the numbers around biology, which lead me to focus on personalised medicine. I then progressed to postdoctoral level and moved to Sweden, where I was trained in applying advanced epidemiological techniques to quantify the role of multi-OMICs and their mediator link between dietary intakes and disease pre-conditions. Before joining Oxford, I was appointed as a researcher at King's College London, Twins group, as well as having the privilege of working with the unique company, which funds large trials with the hope of progressing personalised medicine/nutrition.
