I am currently a Lecturer in Genomics at the University of Westminster, UK. I feel passionate about helping clinicians and researchers interpret genomic data. My research group encompasses work on the application of a variety of algorithms and analysis pipelines for interpretation and diagnostics of next generation sequencing patient data. I have a keen interest in developing business around my research and extensive social network, which has led to the founding of several companies.

I have a long standing career on bioinformatic analysis of human genome data since 2000. After finishing my PhD in bioinformatics at the University of Manchester, I joined the Wellcome Sanger Institute in Cambridge (UK), developing the DECIPHER database to help diagnose patients with rare genomic disorders. As Project Leader at the Genome Analysis Center (nowadays Earlham Institute) I led research on animal and plant genome analysis. Previous roles also included Technical Coordinator ELIXIR-UK, a distributed infrastructure for life science information and coordinator of the BioJavaScript open source community. I have also been chair at the Technical Committee for the Global Organisation for Bioinformatics Learning, Education and Training and a member of the board of directors at the International Society for Computational Biology

I consider myself an expert in computational genomics, open software community and genome medicine evangelist. I am a fellow of the Software Sustainability Institute and a member of the British Society for Genetic Medicine. As well as Founder and Chief Scientist of Cambridge Precision Medicine, a startup located at the University of Cambridge enterprise incubator, I am Director of the Clinical Genomics Expert Course of Universidad Internacional de La Rioja, Madrid (Spain).
