Research Interests

I am interested in the genetic determinants of drug sensitivity in human cancers. Combining in vitro, in vivo and bioinformatics approaches, I hope to discover new genetic weaknesses to exploit. I am particularly interested in analyses of genetic data from tumour samples in clinical trials. I have experience in the analysis of somatic copy number alterations and their link to survival.

Current Work

My current project involves determining the role that the regulation of alternative splicing plays in drug sensitivity in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.
