I did my undergraduate degree at the University of Edinburgh in Biological Sciences with honours in Genetics. I then moved to Newcastle University to do a masters of research in Medical Genetics. I recently returned to Edinburgh to start my PhD at the MRC Human Genetics Unit.
My research focuses on identifying risk mutations and mutational processes driving cancer development.
