I've recently joined the R&D team in the Sanger Institute, where I'll be working on assays that use high throughput DNA sequencing platforms. These approaches will be applied to scientific problems across the institute. In my previous project I was working on methods to study gene expression in Malaria parasites using high-throughput DNA sequencing technologies (RNA-seq).

In my spare time I'm activity involved with the student branch of science outreach in Cambridge, and in 2009-11 I was the student president of Cambridge Hands-On Science (CHaOS). Now I'm trying a range of other outreach activities, including communicating science by the medium of stand-up comedy!
