Research Interest

I developed an interest in understanding transcriptional control as an undergraduate. During my PhD with Prof Bonifer at the University of Leeds I studied the mechanism of repression of the myeloid-specific c-fms gene by Pax5 during B lineage restriction. I joined Prof Bertie Gottgens lab in 2006 where I began to investigate transcriptional networks at play during haematopoiesis. My research is focused on the study of transcriptional networks that control haematopoietic stem cells and how this network changes during differentiation. I also have a great interest in understanding how enhancer elements work, what makes an enhancer and how transcription factors know where, when and in what combination to bind.
