Since 2005 I have worked in the School of Life Sciences, where I design and develop e-learning resources and software for epidemiological research projects. My work includes online application design, data manipulation and visualisation, web design, database design and animation.
Recent projects include (click on the images for further details):
|GIS application to visualise epidemic risk
||A resource for creating online games||Android app for data collection at abattoirs
Prior to working as a software developer, I carried out research into the structure-function relationships and interactions of extracellular matrix proteins at the Max-Planck Institute for Biochemistry near Munich, Germany, as well as spending a few months as a visiting researcher at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, studying isoforms of the basement membrane protein laminin.
I also worked for several years as a postdoctoral researcher in the Advanced Drug Delivery Research Unit of Ciba-GEIGY Pharmaceuticals (now Novartis) in Horsham, UK, investigating the use of monoclonal antibodies as drug targeting vectors.
