My research programme focuses on the genetic changes our cells acquire throughout life, and how these mutations are related to ageing, cancer and disease processes. Areas of interest include: the identification of somatic mutation processes; the characterisation of patterns of cancer evolution; how somatic mutations delineate clonal relationships of normal cellular populations and how they affect normal cells' behaviour.
