My research uses high-throughput/next generation sequencing technologies to study the patterns of genomic, transcriptomic, and gene-regulatory variation between and within populations of microbial pathogens. I received my PhD in Clinical Medicine in 2013 from Imperial College London. Between 2013-2017, I worked at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT as a Wellcome Trust Postdoctoral Fellow. In 2018 I worked at UCL in London before more recently joining the University of Aberdeen as a Lecturer in Bioinformatics. My current projects include studying the evolution of virulence in various human pathogens, including Cryptococcus gattii.
