Matthew is a PhD student at the Sanger Institute supervised by Raheleh Rahbari and Matthew Hurles.
My research focuses on characterising germline mutations, which are those that occur in reproductive cells and can be passed on to future generations. I am investigating the cellular processes influencing these mutations and the selection pressures shaping them with the goal of better understanding human evolution and heritable disease.
