Personal profile

Biography

Originally trained as a statistician, in 2012, I received a MMath Statistics degree from the University of St Andrews. On graduation I moved to Cambridge to start a PhD, with Prof. Paul Pharoah, investigating the role of rare germline genetic variation in ovarian cancer susceptibility and survival after diagnosis. On completion in 2015, I gained further research experience of working as a Medical Statistician for 10 months in the Clinical Trial Service Unit at the University of Oxford. 

In 2016, I joined the lab of Prof. Colin Semple in the MRC Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine (IGMM) working as a bioinformatician for the Scottish Genomes Partnership. In December 2017, I was awarded a UKRI Innovation Fellowship to investigate the mutational landscape of high grade serous ovarian cancer in collaboration with Prof. Charles Gourley, AstraZeneca and the Scottish Genomes Partnership.
