I am a Group Leader at the Weatherall Institute for Molecular Medicine and an Honorary Consultant Medical Oncologist at the Churchill Hospital.

My work and that of my group is primarily supported by the Wellcome Trust. I studied preclinical medicine in London, intercalating a BSc and PhD at UCL prior to completing my clinical training in Oxford. I graduated in 2006 and have completed specialist training in Oxford in Medical Oncology. Prior to setting up my own group I was a Wellcome MB PhD postdoctoral Fellow with Professor Julian Knight at the Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics.


I provide tutoring in cancer therapeutics with a focus on immuno-oncology.

Research interests

I am interested in the genetic and epigenetic determinants of variation in human immunity with a particular emphasis on identifying factors that regulate the response to checkpoint inhibitor therapy.
