DPhil Student


I am a DPhil student in Clinical Neurosciences at St Peter's College. My research is on the use of next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies for the molecular diagnosis of Inherited Retinal Degeneration, with a particular focus on juvenile macular degeneration (Stargardt disease).

My research is in translational medicine, and as such we work in large teams including; opthalmologists; clinical geneticists; research scientists; bioinformaticians; as well as health economists, and biotech and pharmaceutical companies who develop NGS technologies.

The research I have been involved in has lead to the introduction of a diagnostic screening test using next-generation sequencing and targeted capture being used in the NHS regional genetics lab in Oxfordshire, one of the first such systems to be brought into place in the country.

I started my postgraduate studies at Oxford in October 2010, having previously attained my bachelor's degree in Biology at Oxford Brookes University. Outside the lab I am a four time Blue in the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race, and have represented Great Britain internationally in rowing.
