Biographical Information

I am a bioinformatics researcher (systems biology if you like- I don't like this name) in the Viral Oncology group within the new(ish) UCL Cancer Institute. I am studying a lot of microarray, microRNA and sequencing data. I am mainly involved with Kaposi Sarcoma, Carcinoma of Unkown Primary (CUP), Head and Neck Tumour trial data-- and lots more....

I'm from Glasgow, Scotland- where I was an undergraduate, before moving to Cambridge to do a PhD with Simon Laughlin and Roger Hardie on the statistics, electrophysiology and genetics of the Drosphila (Fruit-Fly) eye.

Then I moved to London and worked in Parliament as a researcher, at Nature editing the website, and a few other jobs for a year or so.

I decided after that to change scientific direction and become a little less specialised so I took a Masters (MRes) course in Bioinformatics at Birkbeck College. This led to a position in the Viral Oncology group within the Wolfson Institute at UCL with Chris Boshoff. More recently our group has now moved to the newly opened UCL Cancer Institute and I have become a Cancer Research UK employed researcher.

Outside of work- I'm generally interested in computers, data mining, machine learning, Classics, Greek mythology, politics, jazz, techno, football, running, very loud parties and drinking-- in reverse order that is...
