Biography

Upon completion of my degree in 2007, I decided that Genetics was the field in which I wanted to dedicate my career. I went on to do my PhD at The University of Manchester, based in the Arthritis Research UK Centre for Genetics and Genomics.  The aim of my PhD was to follow up a genetic locus which had previously been associated with risk of rheumatoid arthritis using fine mapping to identify the causal variants.

Upon being awarded my PhD in December 2011 I started working as a research associate within the unit. 

My post-doctoral career has focussed on following up geneitc loci in RA and JIA, investigating the genetic architecture of disease and more recently using genetics and immunophenotyping to stratify patients.

Qualifications
