I am an experienced researcher and trainer, spending most of my working time as Chief Scientist at Cambridge Precision Medicine, a company helping clinicians interpret genomics. Previously, I was the Scientific Lead at Repositive, a genome data sharing platform company. Before that, I was a 2016 fellow of the Software Sustainability Institute and Project Leader at The Genome Analysis Centre (now Earlham Institute). 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 have a PhD in bioinformatics from the University of Manchester, UK, and did my postdoctoral work in clinical genomics at the Wellcome Sanger Institute, in Cambridge. I have authored more than fifty scientific publications and the ‘Perfect DNA’ book; a speculative futuristic novel exploring the ethical and social implications of personal genetic testing in society.
