Computer Science 1.04
If you’ve been wondering what happens at the Turing Institute, what research is being conducted, what ways you could get involved in addition to the Turing Fellow posts, then this day will help to provide some of the answers.
Presentations from Research Fellows, Turing Faculty Fellows and Enrichment year students, as well as discussions on the additional funding streams and opportunities that exist will be given. The University of Warwick Liaison Director, Prof Graham Cormode will also be present to answer questions.
The day will be open for all interested staff, research students and final year students who may be considering continuing their education in data science.

Title: Logic at the Turing
Abstract: When I joined the Turing in January 2017, my background was in automata, logic, games and verification, with a rather theoretical approach.

Title: Plant signal integration as a case study of computer-aided experimental design
Abstract: It is important to understand how plants sense and respond to temperature so we can engineer crops to withstand the detrimental effects of climate change. However, it is becoming clear that plants respond to temperature in a context-dependent manner—their response is conditional on other environmental signals such as light and time of day. To understand the mechanism that allows plants to respond to temperature in a context-dependent manner, we need to dissect the structure of the regulatory network that integrates environmental signals. This requires new innovations in computer-aided experimental design, such as the development of new tools to help generate hypotheses, control for biases in existing datasets, and prioritise further experiments to maximise information gained under cost and time constraints. In this presentation, I will use my previous research in plant signal integration as a case study to describe broader questions in computer-aided experimental design that I hope to address during my fellowship at the Alan Turing Institute and at the University of Warwick.
