Research summary

My current research focuses on complex inheritance and specifically in the development and applications of integrative mapping methods that are based on high-resolution and population-specific genetic maps. My analyses utilise genomic and transcriptomic data to advance the identification of the functionally implicated genes and pathways related to human complex diseases. 

Teaching summary

I am currently giving various lectures and tutorials for the Biological Sciences degree program, Medical School and for two MSc courses. The topics vary from introductory lectures on human genetics, methods for human disease gene mapping and linkage disequilibrium in human populations. I am also the organizer for the Introduction to Human Genetics course (2nd year BSc/MSci).
