I've been involved in research, consultancy and training for a while, most of which is documented via LinkedIn or ORCID above - or through specific skills & training projects below.
I provide expert bioinformatics and data analytics support to biotech, pharma and FMCG clients through APEXOMIC (formally Applied Exomic - Founded in 2012). I have a research background spanning wet-lab and bioinformatics, with particular expertise in functional genetics, biomolecular modelling and data integration for immunology and oncology. After spending 10 years in academia conducting collaborative industry research projects, I have spent the last decade supporting in silico target discovery and (bio)therapeutic development in industry.
I also have broad experience of teaching and training in bioinformatics, including development of training strategy. I led development of the UK Level 7 Bioinformatics Scientist Apprenticeship standard and acted as Higher Education Consultant to the UK Science Industry Partnership. I continue to support skills projects in industry, academia and national institutes, including as an invited organiser of the joint EMBL EBI & Wellcome Trust bioinformatics international summer school, and lead on bioinformatics apprenticeship assessment with the NHS/HEE National School of Health Care Science.
