What is your general research area?

My research is in bioinformatics applied to molecular epidemiology. I am interested in integration of diverse biomedical datasets to improve our understanding of cardiovascular disease and cancer.

What is special about our WT programme?

Our programme encourages multi-disciplinary collaboration, providing students with the opportunity to work with (and learn from) experts in a wide range of fields. Our students benefit from the availability of excellent datasets, high quality training courses and opportunities to participate in international collaborations.

Why do you contribute to this PhD programme?

I feel strongly that the future of biomedical research depends on highly motivated, well trained interdisciplinary researchers. I am committed to providing an environment that provides outstanding young scientists with the opportunity to become future research leaders.
