From 2014-2017, I studied for a BSc in Natural Sciences at the University of Exeter. This interdisciplinary course allowed me to study topics from physics, chemistry, biology, maths and programming – emphasising their areas of overlap. By my final year, I had focused my studies on applied mathematics and environmental topics and completed a bioinformatics project with the Complex Disease Epigenomics Group. I then went on to work as a Research Assistant in the same group and contributed to a number of research projects; a list of my publications can be found here
. For the next two years I worked as an Environmental Consultant at Aether, supporting projects related to greenhouse gas and air pollutant emission inventories.
In 2020, I joined the Compass CDT and I am currently working on a project with Prof Andrew Dowsey, Dr Colin Campbell, and Dr Haeran Cho. The project is entitled ‘Statistical learning of quantitative data at scale to redefine biomarker discovery’, where the aim is to develop a deep learning topic model which can predict and quantify entities in proteomic mass spectrometry data.
