Short Biography

I'm a 4th Year DPhil student on the Systems Approaches to Biomedical Sciences (Industrial Doctoral Centre - IDC) Programme at Oxford University.

Originally trained in Physics, I have completed the first year of the IDC and am now starting my DPhil research. I am a student based in the Nuffield Department of Medicine at the Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC), but I am also associated with the department of Statistics.
