I work in bioinformatics with an emphasis on biological data standards, ontologies, semantic data and data integration. I received my PhD in semantic data integration at Newcastle University. I am currently working on the FAIRsharing project (https://fairsharing.org) via the OERC at the University of Oxford. In the past I have worked for Newcastle University, the University of Manchester, and the European Bioinformatics Institute. I am also an active STEM Ambassador, running STEM sessions and activities for local primary and secondary schools.
