I am a bioinformatician working in the Clinical Informatics Research Unit (CIRU) as a member of the Access Extract Integrate Safe data (AXIS) team. AXIS focuses on providing scalable data extraction and analysis solutions to researchers both from the university and the hospital to conduct research with the aim of improving patient health outcomes.

Before this post I have been a postdoctoral researcher within both academia and industry where I specialised in omics analysis techniques such as RNA-Sequencing, Methylation, genomics and proteomics. I originally conducted a PhD at Southampton University (completed: 2017) which implemented machine learning to conduct reverse vaccinology research on bacterial pathogens.
