My research focuses on small RNA pathways, which are found in most animals and plants, and function in antiviral defence, gene regulation and genome stability. I am interested in how different these pathways are between species, and how these differences have evolved. In particular, I am interested in how coevolution between hosts and pathogens has driven changes in small RNA pathways.

I am currently a post-doc with Frank Jiggins in Cambridge, and previously completed a PhD with Darren Obbard in Edinburgh. If you’d like to hear more about my research, please email me.
