Overview

I am a Research Fellow in the Genetics of Complex Traits Group. My main area of research is on development of analysis methods to understand the maternal and foetal genetic contributions to birth weight. A key area of my work is performing large-scale genome wide association studies (GWAS) and meta-analysis within the Early Growth Genetics (EGG) consortium  which has resulted in publications in Nature (2016), Nature Genetics (2019) and Human Molecular Genetics (2018) and has identified 190 regions of the genome with are robustly associated with birth weight.
