Bioinformatics is a broad field, covering the processing, analysis, visualisation and storage of data from biological experiments. As the speed of data generation through high throughput screening increases, bioinformatics is ever more important in the interpretation of results into biological insights.
I have been working as a Bioinformatician in industry (Unilever, Oxford Gene Technology , Mars) as a researcher and service provider for more than 10 years. My work has allowed me to become involved in a variety of interesting research projects in toxicology, medical research and assay design. A common theme across these projects has been using bespoke statistical methods and analysis pipelines to extract inferences from genomic, transcriptiomic, metabolomics and diverse other datasets.
I now provide bioinformatics support to research projects across the School of Life Sciences.
