I am a DPhil Student supervised by Prof. Adam Mead and co-supervised by Prof. Sten Eirik Jacobsen. A molecular biologist by background with a deep interest in next generation sequencing, my research focuses on the application of single genomics to unravel the molecular heterogeneity of the stem cell compartment in patients with myeloid malignancies.
