I am interested in applying methods from computer science to investigate DNA structure and function. The topic of my current work is applying big data methods to study DNA replication dynamics at single-molecule resolution. Currently, I am a postdoctoral research assistant at the University of Oxford's Sir William Dunn School of Pathology in the group of Proessor Conrad Nieduszynski. I studied for my PhD at Christ Church, University of Oxford as a Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher and EscoDNA Fellow. Together with my supervisors Professor Andrew J. Turberfield and Professor Luca Cardelli, we developed experimental methods and theoretical tools for creating DNA computing systems from interacting networks of DNA walkers. Recent topics of interest include:

  • logic systems for DNA computing,
  • "big data" in DNA replication dynamics,
  • mathematical modelling of cancer immunotherapy,
  • symmetric inverse semigroups of partial symmetries in code.
