I graduated in 2012 from the University of Cambridge with a BA in Biomedical Engineering and a MEng in Information and Computer Engineering. I am currently a PhD student in the Statistics and Computational Biology Laboratory supervised by Professor Simon Tavaré.
I work on developing statistical methodology and implementing software tools to analyse high-throughput next-generation sequencing data. I am particularly interested in using machine learning approaches to dissect the intra-tumour heterogeneity of cancer patients by integrating information from multiple samples and cells.
