Biography

I am postdoctoral research associate within Professor Cathryn Lewis’s group at the Social Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry (SGDP) Centre. My post is funded by the NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre. My work uses statistical genetics to understand and predict outcomes related to mental health. I am working on two main projects currently, one investigating the genetic basis of antidepressant response, and the other focuses on improving genomic prediction. My current post at King’s began in November 2018. 

Research interests:

  • Genetic basis of mental health and disease 
  • Genomic risk prediction 
  • Statistical genetic analysis which integrates functional genomic annotations

    CATHRYN TEAM Statistical Genetics SGDP 3
    The Statistical Genetics Unit

    Led by Professor Cathryn Lewis, it is a cross-school unit, comprising 20 researchers in the Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Centre and in the Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics. Our aims are to develop and apply statistical methods to identify and characterise the genetic component to common, complex disorders.
