Overview

Sonia completed her PhD at University College London in June 2013 on the discovery and application of genetic determinants of cardiovascular disease risk factors, with particular application in disease risk prediction and determining causality using Mendelian randomisation. Her interests lie in using genetic, epigenetic and genomic data to better understand the underlying architecture of complex disease traits.
