I am currently a postdoctoral researcher working in the group of Peter Kharchenko. My current research is focused on the development of statistical methods for analysing single-cell and in situ next generation sequencing data, in close collaboration with groups at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Wyss Institute.
I received my PhD (DPhil) from the Department of Statistics at the University of Oxford, where I was a member of the Life Sciences Interface Doctoral Training Centre and the Genome Analysis & Bioinformatics group of Prof. Jotun Hein. My research at Oxford was mainly focused on developing statistical methods for analysing protein structures, incorporating both evolutionary and biophysical information.
Prior to my PhD, I specialised in theoretical and computational chemistry as an undergraduate, with a focus on Monte Carlo simulation techniques and coarse-grain models of protein dynamics. I then spent a year in the US studying Bayesian statistics, before returning to the UK to begin my doctoral studies.
