Research

My previous research focussed on data/text mining and its application in the biomedical domain. I was also interested in using statistical/network methods on the   functional interpretation of gene lists.

My current research centres on the development and application of bioinformatics methods on  high-throughput genome sequencing data for neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative studies.
