Areas of Interest & Expertise

  • Bacterial Genetics
  • Microbial Ecology
  • Systems Biology
  • Data Science


I am interested in quantitative and mathematical approaches to Biology and in the applications of Data Science. 

Prior to joining the University, I carried out postdoctoral research in the Systems Biology Theme at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, University of Wisconsin, Madison. 

My undergraduate degree is in computer science and I switched to the life sciences for my doctoral research, which was carried out at The Rockefeller University. 

I have research experience in Systems Biology, Bacterial Genetics and Microbial Ecology. At the University, I teach courses in the Biology major. I have supervised projects on Optogenetics in bacteria, antibiotic resistance, applications of graph theory and information theory and agent-based modelling.
