Hello! I’m Sunniyat, a Postdoctoral Scientist at UCL Cancer Institute, where I spend my time researching blood cancers and the non-coding genome. I completed my PhD in Clinical Medicine Research at Imperial College London and before that I studied Biochemistry at Oxford University. During my PhD, I studied epigenetic mechanisms that contribute to environmentally derived cancers. I love reading about science and thinking about new ways to describe complex scientific issues in the simplest ways. This curiosity about science communication led to the genesis of this website back in 2011! When I’m not geeking it out I love eating great food, mixing music and hanging out with friends + family!
