About me

I am a UKRI Innovation Fellow at Health Data Research UK and Clinical Reader in Rheumatology. I moved to Imperial College as a Group Leader in 2019.

My group’s research lies at the interface of molecular epidemiology, computational biology and clinical medicine. Our focus is understanding the molecular and cellular basis of immune-mediated inflammatory diseases using a combination of genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics. We employ a wide range of techniques including longitudinal molecular profiling, polygenic risk scores, and Mendelian randomisation, leveraging both our own in-house datasets and also publically available resources (eg GWAS summary statistics, UK Biobank).
