Personal profile

Research interests

I am a Research Fellow at the MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit (IEU) based at The University of Bristol. My current research is focussed on identifying genetic variants for atopic dermatitis (eczema) in multiple ancestries, and investigating causal risk factors by applying Mendelian Randomization techniques. I am also involved in research with the EAGLE eczema consortium which aims to use eczema and genetic data to improve our understanding of disease. I work with a number of datasets including UK Biobank and ALSPAC (Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children).

Prior to this role I gained my BSc in Medical Genetics from the University of Leicester, and my MSc in Human Molecular Genetics from Imperial College London. I completed my PhD at The University of Manchester in 2016 where I investigated novel susceptibility loci for Psoriatic Arthritis. This involved performing genetic and bioinformatic analysis with large datasets to identify and characterise novel susceptibility loci for disease.
