Research interests

My research interests relate to the prenatal origins of health and disease: how our genetics and the exposures we experience before birth might influence our lifelong health.

A lot of my work focusses on how epigenetic measures at birth might mediate and/or predict health outcomes in later life.  Within the MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit's Epigenetic Epidemiology Programme (PI: Caroline Relton), I lead a workstream on Prenatal and Childhood Epigenetics.

I also work with the Cleft Collective cohort study and have a particular interest in the causes and consequences of being born with a cleft lip and/or palate.
