Research fellow in Bioinformatics at the Warwick Systems Biology Centre, University of Warwick.
Working on high throughput data analysis (microarray data, next generation sequencing) and data integration (database management, text-mining, gene annotation via public databases)...
With a background in the statistical mechanics of disordered systems, my research
focusses on the interface between statistical physics and molecular biology. At the centre is the relationship
between fluctuations and noise in biological systems, the corresponding statistical ensembles, and biological
function. This connection emerges at very different levels and timescales, from stochastic modeling of
gene expression to the population dynamics of regulatory DNA.
