– Birkbeck, University of London
Between 2016 and 2018 I completed my MSc in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology at Birkbeck and achieved a Distinction grade. Working with the pharmaceutical company UCB, I worked on creating a software tool for drug efficacy prediction, based on pharmacological targets -> Ed Chalstrey MSc Thesis
From 2015 to 2018 I was employed as a PHP coder for WSD, a software as a service company in the financial sector, working with investment bank clients, primarily Citigroup.
During the Summer of 2015 I was involved in a computational biology project in the Dessimoz lab at UCL to extend the django-based python code for the OMA orthology browser; specifically to include domain architecture images for the protein sequences. This work is still ongoing by other members of the research department.
– The Sainsbury Laboratory (TSL)
Between August 2013 and July 2014 I was employed as a pre-doctoral researcher in Bioinformatics at The Sainsbury Laboratory in Norwich. I developed a genetic algorithm called GATOC, and published two gems (software packages) for the Ruby language: pdist and pmeth. Source code for each of these projects can be found on my GitHub page. Below is a figure taken from the results section of my documentation for GATOC:
In the year after leaving, another internship student continued the work and wrote a paper in which I’m second author: Identification of Genomic regions Carrying a Causal Mutation in Unordered Genomes
The theme of the work was then further developed by another researcher who published in BMC Bioinformatics -> Rapid fine mapping of causative mutations from sets of unordered, contig-sized fragments of genome sequence
– University of Essex
During my Biological Sciences degree at the University of Essex I completed a final year research project entitled: Differential Profiling and Gene-Functional Analysis of the Transcriptome in Normal and Lung Adenocarcinoma Cells. <- You can click here to read a PDF version of my dissertation; see below an example figure taken from it.
