Steve studied Zoology at the University of Glasgow before completing an MRes. in Molecular Genetics at the University of Manchester, where he undertook research projects focusing on the genetics of both Arabidopsis and cystic fibrosis.
His interest in the influence of genetics on human disease was furthered during time at the WTCHG, Oxford where he worked on the immunogenetics of susceptibility to severe malaria for a couple of years, before moving to Barcelona. He transitioned from bench scientist to bioinfomatician whilst completing his PhD in Comparative Genomics from the Universitat Pompeu Fabra/Hospital del Mar Medical Research Institute in Barcelona in 2013, before joining the Data Analysis Team at CNAG later that year.
