I am a group leader within the Cancer Genetics Team at Norwich Medical School, with over a decade of experience in applying and developing novel analyses of large-scale ‘omics datasets from human tumour samples to answer clinically relevant questions in translational cancer research. My focus is improving clinical outcomes in prostate cancer.

After completing my first degree in Physics (MSci) at Imperial College London, I went on to study for an MRes in Biological Complexity and PhD in Computational Biology at University College London. My PhD focused on mathematical modelling of the p53 gene regulatory network and in particular integrating models and experiment data. I was employed as a Bioinformatics Officer at the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) in Sutton for over six years before moving to the University of East Anglia to lead the bioinformatics team within the Cancer Genetics Group in September 2013. In June 2016 I became a senior lecturer and in 2021 I was promoted to Professor of Medical Bioinformatics and Genomics.
