BiographyI am a Research Fellow at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research in Melbourne, Australia.
I began my research career in the UK, where I completed an MSc in Medical Statistics and a PhD in Genetic Epidemiology from the University of Leicester. My work in Leicester focused on exploring the genetics of respiratory health and disease and smoking behaviour. Since moving to Melbourne, I have been focusing on identifying genetic causes of speech disorders as part of the NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence in Speech and Language.
