I have a strong background in molecular and cell biology in the Biomedical sciences and became interested in bioinformatics while working as a Post-doc. I therefore decided to do a masters in Computational Biology to develop my bioinformatics skills. Since joining the University of Plymouth I have worked in collaboration with several groups based in the School of Biomedical Sciences and the Peninsula Medical School on various themes including cancer, peripheral nerve cell profiling by single cell RNA-seq, vaccine development and infection and immunity.
I am keen to collaborate on different projects with various groups, if you would like to discuss future bioinformatics projects with me or how I might be able to help with current projects please do get in touch.
