Learn more about my work

After completing degrees in Epidemiology and Public Health (Cambridge University), I interned at the World Health Organisation’s Department for HIV/AIDS, igniting my passion to work on projects geared towards global health and disease prevention. I moved into genomics just as the sector began to take off, project managing – at the time – the world’s largest human genome sequencing project (UK10K). I’ve since worked on initiatives to improve health outcomes through rapid, actionable reports in malaria-endemic regions, and was involved in the 100,000 Genomes Project. Before joining the CGPS I led product and programme delivery at a precision medicine software spin-out (Congenica), implementing a clinical decision support platform to interpret genomic data.
