Personal profile


My group applies genomics, transcriptomics, bioinformatics, computational biology and functional biology to understand normal cell/tissue function and to the study of genetic diseases, including rare genomic disorders and cancer.

We are based at the Manchester Centre for Genomic Medicine at the North West Genomic Laboratory Hub, and closely aligned to the application of new technologies and software in healthcare genomics. We are particularly interested in studying the non-coding genome and understanding how common, rare and combinations of variants impact gene expression.
