I am a post-doctoral researcher in the lab of Prof. Shona Murphy in the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology at the University of Oxford, where my research is funded by a Junior Research Fellow at St. John’s College. My current research studies the links between pre-mRNA splicing and transcription in human cells, with the aim of filling in the gaps in our knowledge of co-transcriptional splicing regulation. My postdoctoral research is an expansion of my PhD research, where I explored the links between splicing and transcription and splicing and chromatin in budding yeast. Before my PhD, I did a masters at the University of Cambridge where I studied gene expression in African trypanosomes. In addition, before selecting my PhD lab I was in a rotation programme where I studied the cell cycle in Human and insect cells.
