Professor of Genetics and Wellcome Trust Senior Fellow, University of Leicester

I was brought up and educated in Durham, and went to the University of Oxford to study Biochemistry in 1981. I then did a DPhil at the Genetics Laboratory there, where I developed an interest in human Y chromosomes. In 1992 I moved to the Department of Genetics in Leicester to study human Y chromosome diversity, under an MRC Training Fellowship, where I have remained until today, currently under the second renewal of a Wellcome Trust Senior Fellowship.
