Emma completed a BSc in Biology at the University of Southampton in 2004 and given her interest in genetics, within a year had applied for a training position in cytogenetics at St. George’s Hospital in Tooting which specialised in both postnatal and prenatal karyotyping. Following training, Emma spent 5 years in the field of cancer cytogenetics at the Royal Marsden before returning to her roots in constitutional genetics at St. George’s in 2014. Array analysis had been introduced by this point and she gained extensive experience in the use of this technique both in the postnatal and prenatal setting. At the end of 2019, following the national NHSE reconfiguration of genomics, Emma took up post as Deputy Operations Lead and, nine months later, Operations lead in the Prenatal and Reproductive Genetics at SEGLH.
