I am a statistical geneticist with a background in population genetics and quantitative trait association mapping.  I am currently using genetic data to investigate the relationship between type I diabetes and autoimmune thyroid disease, in order to provide insights into the mechanistic basis of the former. I am also analysing data in the UK Biobank, attempting to identify environmental risk factors that lead to type I diabetes.

Previously I have worked on the genetics of human facial features, deriving measurements from 3D photographs, and finding statistical associations of these with DNA variants. As part of this work I developed methods for extracting the most heritable phenotypes from complex, multivariate image data. I have also worked on theories explaining why organisms reproducing sexually have a selective advantage over those that do not.
