I obtained by PhD in Genetics from the University of British Columbia working with Dixie Mager at the Terry Fox Laboratory in Vancouver, Canada.  I then moved to the UK to take an extended postdoctoral position at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in Hinxton, Cambridge, followed by subsequent work in Edinburgh. In other positions in Edinburgh, I analysed data from multiple short-read sequencing technologies aimed at understanding gene regulation and RNA biology in the context of blood development, acute myeloid leukaemia and male germ cell development. I have since taken a permanent position as bioinformatician at the University of Aberdeen, but collaborate with Prof Donal O'Carroll, FRSE.
