Research Associate After completing a BSc degree in Molecular Biology at the University of Manchester, I moved to Oxford for a DPhil degree to study how common genetic variants influence fat distribution and risk of metabolic diseases. Currently, my research focuses on identifying novel rare genetic variants causing type 2 diabetes. I am particularly interested in understanding how does ageing influence multiple age-related diseases and testing whether common underlying mechanisms exist.
