I lead Warwick Systems Biology's bioinformatics engineering group, supporting research projects across the University and our collaborators in integration, analysis and visualisation of biological data.
My personal interests and work span the domains of life, specifically including human, insect, plant, microbial and viral genomic, expression, interactome and metabolic pathway data.
I am developing bioinformatic approaches to understanding response to environmental stress in Arabidopsis and metabolic switching in Streptomyces coelicolor. I am collaborating on genome assembly and development of a SNP platform for Brassica oleracea analysing genome resequencing and transcriptome sequence data. I am on the PALS group of the SYSMO programme, developing common approaches to bioinformatics for the systems biology of microorganisms. I am an honorary member of the Allaby Research Group which specialises in plant evolution and crop domestication and collaborate on plant archaeogenomics. I maintain an ongoing interest in developing comparative models of genome organisation and regulation in Brassicaceae. In collaboration with Medical School colleagues, I work on expression analysis in pregnancy and in relation to adipose tissue and metabiolic disorder.
In collaboration with Rich Savage I'm part of the prize-winning WarwickDataScience competitive predictive modelling team. I'm a review editor for Frontiers in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology.
Ph.D. Plant and Environmental Science, University of Warwick: Constraints on sequence evolution in the segmentally duplicated Brassica oleracea genome
M.Sc. Conservation and Utilisation of Plant Genetic Resources (Distinction), University of Birmingham
P.G.Cert. Enterprise and Network Management, Sheffield Hallam University Business School
B.Eng. (Hons.) Electronic Engineering, University of Sheffield
I have provided leadership in a variety of collaborative online projects, currently including curation of the ScoCyc database of Streptomyces metabolic pathways, and in the past managing the development of the online Journal of International Wildlife Law and Policy, and working for the Open University as an Associate Lecturer and Team Leader in piloting their first online course. I also provided technical leadership to the European Crop Wild Relative Diversity Assessment and Conservation Forum, and was responsible for database design and development of the forum's online database of the Crop Wild Relatives of Europe and the Mediterranean.
I have worked as a consultant for a variety of international management consultancy companies and public sector organisations through my own consultancy business, providing technical leadership in some of the UK's largest-scale data integration projects.
