Personal profile

Research interests

I am a Post-doctoral Research Associate in Applied Genetic Epidemiology in the Cancer Research UK  (CRUK) programme based in the School of Social and Community Medicine. I am currently working on the design and undertaking of Recall by Genotype (RbG) studies under the supervision of Dr Nicholas Timpson. The RbG studies involve the recruitment of a subset of participants or their biosamples from an existing cohort for more detailed phenotypic analysis. The aim of my research is to understand biological mechanisms underlying cancer risk and progression by undertaking the RbG studies.

I did a cross-disciplinary Ph.D. in Cell Biology and Clinical Epidemiology. My Ph.D. research involved using a unique combination of cell biology and epidemiological approaches to better understand the regulation of fascin-1 in cancer and the translational potential of fascin-1, as well as its regulators, as potential cancer biomarkers.
