I started my DPhil in Clinical Medicine in 2017 as an NDM Prize Studentship candidate under the supervision of Professor Michael Holmes, Professor Mark McCarthy and Professor Cecilia Lindgren. My work involves investigating the role of obesity and sex hormones in cardiometabolic diseases using a range of approaches, including Mendelian randomization and bioinformatic tools. In particular, I have a strong interest in sex-specific differences in obesity-related traits.
