Research Statement:

My research uses the tools of modern sequence-based genomics to discover the mutations that are present in the genomes of paediatric cancer patients, and to understand how these mutations alter the somatic transcriptome. I have a strong interest in sarcoma biology. I'm directly involved with the  introduction of cutting-edge genomics, such as whole genome sequencing, into clinical practice.
