I recently received my PhD from Virginia Tech studying the role of aneuploidy in cancer in the lab of Dr. Daniela Cimini. I'm interested in all things science publishing.

As a medical doctor trained in genetics, I am interested in the involvement of telomere erosion in aging, cancer and evolution.
- Telomere-driven karyotypic and molecular convergence mimics the transmissibility of cancer in the Tasmanian devil
- A puzzling pattern of cell-cycle-duration inheritance: just an artefact of changing growth conditions in vitro?
- The reanalysis of three large datasets uncovers progressive telomere erosion between healthy human generations and supports an 11-year-old model of telomere-driven macroevolution
I also hold the title of Visiting Professor of Theoretical Medicine at the University of Buckingham, England. I graduated MBBS with honours from the Newcastle Medical School, took a doctorate (MD) at the Medical Research Council Neuroendocrinology group, and did postgraduate training in psychiat...(more)
