Biography

My research focuses on the relationships between exposures, DNA methylation and disease (mainly childhood cancers, obesity and Alzheimer’s disease). My PhD research centred on the developmental origins of health and disease (DOHaD) hypothesis and how early life exposures can affect risk of disease in later life. I am interested in epigenetic changes, such as DNA methylation, which are a hypothesised mechanism underlying the developmental origins of disease. The majority of my research involves the integrated analysis of large, longitudinal cohorts to investigate environmental and social risk factors, and DNA methylation biomarkers of disease.
