I started my DPhil in Clinical Medicine in 2017 as an NDM Prize Studentship candidate. 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.
