Circadian rhythms are daily biological cycles in behaviour, physiology and metabolism observed in organisms as diverse as humans, plants and bacteria. This biological clock regulates many aspects of human health and disease. My group's research objective is to understand the causes and consequences of circadian timekeeping at the cellular level.
As an undergraduate I studied Biochemistry at New College, University of Oxford, and was fortunate to work in Antony Galione’s lab during my final year. I then defected to Cambridge for my PhD, working with Mick Hastings at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology. Following a brief stint of post-doctoral research with Andrew Millar at the University of Edinburgh, I returned to Cambridge to pursue the many interactions between circadian timekeeping and human health. My group is based in the Cell Biology division of the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology. The Medical Research Council fund our work.
