I joined the University of Sunderland in 2017, following postdoctoral positions at Universitätsklinikum Freiburg (Germany), Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston, USA) and the Northern Institute for Cancer Research (Newcastle, UK).

 

My main research interests are in the field of cancer epigenetics, predominantly in relation to the development and progression of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia.

I also have an interest in the effects of environmental exposures upon the epigenome, such as the effects of particulate matter air pollution, which I will be pursuing through collaborative work with Project ELEFANT.
