Postdoctoral Research Scientist
Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Computational Biology
I was trained as a physicist and, in March 2015, I graduated from Swansea University with a PhD in theoretical physics. During my PhD I developed mathematical models to describe the thermodynamics of black holes, the astrophysical objects located at the centre of galaxies.
After gaining my PhD, I joined the Intelligent Systems Laboratory (ISL) at University of Bristol. As a postdoctoral researcher at ISL, I built classifiers for predicting the functional impact of short insertions and deletions (collectively known as indels) in the human genome.
As of June 2016, I'm a member of Dr Nellaker's group where I develop computational biology techniques and deploy machine learning algorithms to facilitate clinical diagnoses of rare diseases.
