I joined the Bioinformatics Core at The University of Sheffield in February 2021.


2016 – 2020: PhD (Systems Biology and Computational Biochemistry) University of Leeds.

2013 – 2016: BSc (Chemistry) Queen Mary, University of London.


After obtaining my first degree in Chemistry, I pursued a PhD in systems biology and computational Biochemistry with Dr James Smith at the University of Leeds (2016-2021). My PhD looked to identify novel drug targets for Basal-like breast cancer. In Sheffield, I work with the Sheffield COVID-19 Genomics Group to support the delivery of a large-scale and rapid whole-genome virus sequencing project, as a part of the COG-UK.
