I originally trained as a theoretical physicist at the University of Cambridge (B.A.,M.Sci), before setting off across the Atlantic to do my Ph.D. at Harvard Medical School. In Sean Megason's lab, I fell in love with embryos, and spent the best part of six years watching them develop under a microscope. In my postdoc, supervised by John Marioni and Ben Simons at the University of Cambridge, I worked on several projects combining my training in physics with my love for developmental biology. In Summer 2020, I started as a Lecturer in Systems Biology at the IMS. 


Research Overview

I use mathematical models, computational data analysis and close collaborations with experimentalists to understand development - the remarkable processes that allow single-cell embryos to develop into complex, functional and diverse adult forms.
