Oxford-Janssen Human Genomics Fellow
Genetics of Dementia
I am part of the informatics team working on dementia and Alzheimer's Disease in the Translational Neuroscience and Dementia Research Group. I am a bioinformatician and a geneticist, and my main focus is to use large genetic datasets to better understanding the impact of genetic variants on Dementia onset and disease heterogeneity across patients. This requires the use of both classical common and rare genome-wide analyses, as well as, the application of more advanced machine learning methodologies, able to capture phenotypic and genetic differences in the same population cohort.
