Edmund is working towards a PhD at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, the focus of which is population structure within Ireland. His work is primarily based on the Irish DNA Atlas, but is also involved in genetic analysis work of population isolates within Ireland. Edmund has previously graduated from the University of Nottingham, studying Biochemistry and Genetics. After graduating he worked for the LGC DNA forensics laboratory. He is really enjoying the details of working on the Irish DNA Atlas, both from the computational standpoint, and from the ties it has with the histories and genealogies of the pedigrees. Ed can recognize almost all of the Irish Counties by now.
