About

I help people use computers to do better science. I work as a scientific computing lab manager at the John Innes Centre. My current research interests include image analysis, computational biology and systems biology. Before joining the JIC I worked as an applications scientist at the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre where my research focused on methods for utilising small molecule and macro-molecular crystallographic data in drug discovery and molecular design. I did my Ph.D. in biochemistry at UCL in professor John Ladbury's biophysics group. During this time I created a database containing information on protein-ligand complexes with both structural and thermodynamic data. Using this data I assessed to what extent structural data can be used to estimate thermodynamic parameters of binding. I also used the thermodynamic data to quantify the extent of enthalpy-entropy compensation in protein-ligand binding.
