Posts and Training:
I moved to Essex in the autumn of 2004 and I hold a joint appointment between the Departments of Biological Sciences and Mathematical Sciences.
Autumn 2009: Promoted to Senior Lecturer
1999-2004: Post-doc in theoretical bioinformatics in the Department of Biochemistry at University College London. From 2002 I have been a member of the London Pain Consortium.
1997-1999: Post-doc in Astrophysics in the Department of Physics at the University of Cambridge.
1992-1996: Ph.D. in Astrophysics at the University of Edinburgh.
1988-1991: B.Sc.(Hons) in Physics with Astrophysics at the University of Manchester.
My teaching responsibilities are in Mathematics.
|Research interests||My interests cover bioinformatics, which is an interdisciplinary subject at the interface of biology, chemistry, computing, mathematics and physics. I develop methods to analyse the data from functional genomics experiments, such as transcriptomic and proteomic experiments. In particular, I look for ways in which to incorporate known biological phenomena into a statistical analysis of the experiments, e.g. alternative splicing into microarray analysis and post-translational modifications into proteomic analysis. I collaborate with a number of medics and scientists, both within Essex and elsewhere.
