I moved to Oxford in September 2013 after completing my undergraduate degree in Combined Honours Biology and Mathematics at the University of Bristol.

I am now working on disentangling the genetic causes of Parkinson’s disease (PD), the second most common neurodegenerative disease, yet one of which we have very little understanding.

I am bringing together several sources of information to develop a gene network, by which I hope to infer molecular mechanisms and functional roles of genetic variants that may provide some insight into the more variable aspects of PD.

Working with the Oxford Parkinson’s Disease Centre (OPDC) I also hope to use a combination of extreme and broad phenotypic clustering to identify SNPs and CNVs causing the disease, in addition to implicating those that contribute to distinct aspects of disease progression.
