Jonathan graduated with a BA in Natural Sciences and an MSci in Systems Biology from the University of Cambridge in 2012. After spending time working as a Research Assistant in the QTL in Health and Disease programme at the MRC Human Genetics Unit in Edinburgh, he started a PhD at the University of Edinburgh, studying the genetic regulation of serum urate levels. Jonathan is currently working as a statistical geneticist at the CEU.
Jonathan is interested in computational methods for unpicking the genetic control of complex traits in healthy populations. Currently, he is working on the INTERVAL study to perform eQTL mapping on RNA sequencing data, with an eye to integrating this data with the rich omic resources available in the cohort.
