Profile

After completing my PhD in Switzerland, I moved to the UK to work on Fig wasps behaviour and genetics with Prof J. Cook at Imperial College London and the University of Reading.

I then worked on Drosophila flies at University College London, before moving to the Centre for Cancer Prevention at Queen Mary University of London in 2011.

I am now involved in the development of tests of DNA methylation to diagnose patients at risk of cervical cancer.

I also help coordinate laboratory aspects of sample processing for IBIS and BOUCHE clinical trials.
