Rachel is a clinical training fellow at CELS within Medicine at the University of Southampton.

She studied medicine at Oxford, doing an intercalated BA in molecular medicine. She moved to Southampton in 2015 to train in clinical genetics, where she did an MSc in genomic medicine.

Rachel is interested in how patients, families, clinicians and laboratories perceive and discuss the outcomes from genomic tests, and how they make decisions about which information is relevant to their clinical care and when. She is planning to conduct in-depth interviews with patients and families, and focus groups with clinicians and scientists in order to see how these issues are conceptualised by different people in the real-life clinical setting.
