I earned my BSc in Zoology from University College Dublin in 2019, during which I conducted research on the bioinformatic analysis of high quality PacBio genomes of bats for my thesis. After completing my bachelor’s degree, I pursued an MSc by research in Zoology with a focus cell culture techniques. Throughout this time, I carried out field work in France, Spain, and Central America.
Following the completion of my master’s degree, I worked in the pharmaceutical industry in the cell therapy field.
My project focuses on elucidating mammalian evolution using non-coding genes. My research interests lie in genomics and comparative genomics, and evolution.
