BEng (Hons); MPhil

I am interested in the statistical modelling of data generated from novel genomics assays. I’m currently working on the inference of somatic copy number alterations using Bayesian inference methods. These methods include Bayesian non-parametric approaches and the development of efficient MCMC algorithms.

My background is in Engineering, having completed a BEng in Information Systems Engineering at Imperial College London in 2007. After several years in industry, I developed an interest in Biology and decided to undertake the MPhil in Computational Biology at the University of Cambridge, which I completed in 2014.  I subsequently started a PhD in Mathematical Genomics and Medicine at Cambridge, based in the Tavaré lab at the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute and jointly supervised by Prof. Andy Lynch (now at St. Andrews) and Dr. Ed Morrissey (now at WIMM, University of Oxford).
