      Collapse Overview
      My long term interests are the improvement of patient management for brain tumors. I have ten years experience as a Clinical Cytogeneticist at St James's University Hospital in Leeds, UK where I pioneered the use of next generation sequencing technologies for detection of copy number alterations in patients with developmental delay. I also coordinated the introduction of next generation sequencing services for oncology mutation detection in non-small cell lung cancer. I obtained my PhD with Prof. D. Westhead at The University of Leeds where I worked with microRNA expression data to predict prognosis and drug response in glioblastoma. Currently I work as a postdoctoral fellow in Prof J. Costello's lab at UCSF where I work on the spatial and temporal genetic changes during the progression of glioma from low grade to high grade.
