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 Epidemiology Unit.  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, investigating the genetic architecture of disease and more recently using genetics and immunophenotyping to stratify patients.
