I studied Molecular Biology at The University of Liverpool then went on to complete a Ph.D. in Genetics at Queen Mary University of London. Currently, I’m employed as Lead Data Scientist (yak shaver..) and Senior Bioinformatician at The Bioinformatics Core at the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre for Mental Health, Kings College London.

I have 16 years experience in dealing with all kinds of Data - from molecular, genetic and clinical, cross-sectional and time-series data - and then putting it all together to identify potential biomarkers for disease prediction and progression, novel therapeutic targets, and contribute to a better understanding of human disease. I have a keen interest in the potential of Genomic and Personalised Medicine, and the education of patients and the public in these areas.

I’m a highly motivated, self-taught and always learning “Data Scientist”, and looking for a focused, honest and enthusiastic team to work with. Ideally, I am looking for a role where I can use my skills to contribute to and drive forward real-world translational science, and help make an impact on public health, nationally and globally.

I have a wide range of experience in the analysis of expression and SNP arrays, next generation sequencing data and network/pathway analyses. My work has required the extensive use of multiple bioinformatic and biostatistical approaches for the creation and implementation of pipelines for mixed ‘omic data analysis, data integration, and visualization, and applied predictive modelling.
