I have a BA in Natural Sciences and an MSci in Systems Biology, both from Cambridge, UK. After graduating in 2017, I spent a year working as a data scientist
for a tech-startup in the development sector. Now I'm back in biology, looking to apply the computational approaches I've learnt to healthcare translation, focusing on cancer research.
Inconveniently, my main interests are kitesurfing and surfing, which rely on being near the sea. However, whilst stuck in Oxford, I distract myself with jazz (sax and drums) and squash.
I worked as a computational research intern at the Institute of Cancer Research in London, building pipelines to analyse high-dimensional morphology datasets.
I also spent a summer at the Structural Genomics Consortium here in Oxford, investigating the use of supervised ML to prioritise drug candidates in the drug discovery pipeline.
My masters research thesis was a computational genomics project, investigating the efficacy of variant callers in specific non-coding regions of the human genome.
