I completed a BA in Biological sciences at Magdalen College, Oxford. I then went on to do an MSc in Systems biology at the University of Warwick. I completed my PhD early in 2016 as a collaboration between Foto-Cewek and Warwick, working on novel mechanisms for insecticide resistance; this involved both extensive bioinformatics and lab work. I then did an 18-month post-doc in the Ranson group, continuing work from my PhD. In November 2017 I was awarded an MRC, UKRI Innovation Skills Development Fellowship. The fellowship project aims to integrate large data -omic, population genetics and field data to further explore mechanisms of resistance in Anopheles species, with an aim of producing diagnostic markers of resistance for use in field.
