Affiliations

I am currently a member of the Post-Genomic Bioinformatics group in the Institute of Integrative Biology. I am currently responsible for the development of a BBSRC Sparking Impact project to develop a software tool for performing label-based proteomics.

In addition to this I am also an Honorary Fellow in the Department of Computer Science where I am responsible for the development and management of the GraphDraw project as well as the administration and further development of systems for the management of final year projects and algorithmic teaching.

Education

I currently hold two undergraduate qualifications in software engineering, HND Computing (Software Development) from Wigan & Leigh College, and a BSc (Hons) Computer Applications from the University of Sunderland. In addition to these I hold a MSc Advanced Computer Science and, more recently, have a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Liverpool. For my PhD I was supervised by Prof. Leszek A. Gąsieniec, Prof. Dariusz Kowalski, and Prof. Jurek Czyzowicz.

Employment

Currently I am a software engineer in the Post-Genomic Bioinformatics developing tools for performing label-based proteomics.

Previously, at the later end of the first year of my PhD I was accepted for an internship with INRIA, which took place at LaBRI, Bordeaux, France. For the duration of my internship, I was supervised by Ralf Klasing.
