He has been a clinical research fellow at University of Oxford since 2017, based at the Haematopoietic Stem Cell Biology (HSCB) Lab, in Medical Research Council (MRC) Molecular Haematology Unit (MHU), MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (WIMM). His research focuses on genetic lineage tracing in clonal haematopoiesis and myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs), with a special interest in megakaryocyte/platelet-biased haematopoiesis. He has published a long list of publications in high-impact, top-tier journals either as first author or co-author.
