Senior Postdoctoral Researcher

  • Bioinformatician

I am part of the informatics team working on Translational Neuroscience and Dementia Research.  As a bioinformatician, I am interested in the application of large scale omics data to identify novel biomarkers.  I am currently focused on the characterisation of the WNT–PCP–JNK signaling pathway gene signature in Alzheimer's Disease patients.

I completed a DPhil in Clinical Medicine from Oxford University during which I studied the effects of Copy Number Variants on several disorders including Specific Language Impairment.  Since then I have worked in Molecular Oncology using integrative patient datasets to identify changes in the regulation of the breast cancer genome.
