Rosie graduated with an MPhys in Physics from the University of St Andrews. Subsequently, she joined the Physical Sciences of Imaging in the Biomedical Sciences (PSIBS) Doctoral Training Centre at the University of Birmingham, where she studied for an integrated MSc and PhD. Her PhD project focused on designing DNA probes for in vitro SNP sensing, under the supervision of Prof. Jim Tucker.
Rosie initially worked in the School of Biosciences and Living Systems Institute at the University of Exeter. Working with Dr. Stefano Pagliara, she investigated gene expression in antibiotic tolerant bacteria, using a combination of microfluidics and microscopy.
Subsequently, she now works in the Complex Disease Epigenetics group, supporting the work of Dr. Asami Oguro-Ando. Rosie has mainly focused on genes associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Alzheimer’s disease, and their underlying molecular pathways.
