My responsibilities are split between the Oxford Centre for Early Cancer Detection and the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, Oxford branch.
Within the Oxford Centre for Early Cancer Detection (OxCODE), I coordinate early detection research across Oxford, manage communications and provide scientific grant writing support.
Within Ludwig Oxford, I oversee the management of research data. My other Ludwig roles include LICR Oxford branch communications, including maintenance of the website, and organising public engagement activities.
I did my PhD and post-doc with Prof. Jane Mellor in the Department of Biochemistry, Oxford. My research focused on the role of chromatin and antisense transcription in the regulation of gene transcription, using yeast as a model organism.
Antisense transcription-dependent chromatin signature modulates sense transcript dynamics.
