Research Summary

I coordinate BioSS research in Statistical Genomics and Bioinformatics which aims to develop and apply novel statistical and computational methodologies to analyse data from biological research. These data include genetic association (gene -> phenotype), gene and protein expression, genomic sequence and variation data amongst others.

My current methodological research focuses on three main project areas

I am particularly interested in developing better ways to handle and draw insightful biological information from emerging high throughput sequencing, proteomic and metabolomic data facilitated by analyses adapted for use with high performance computing systems.
