I am a Norwich Research Park Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership (NRPDTP) PhD student working in Anthony Hall’s group in collaboration with BASF.
My work is focused on using a computational approach to study the regulatory regions of genes in the model plant species Arabidopsis and the crop wheat. By using open data and machine learning I hope to further understand what regions of the genome control what genes are expressed.
Prior to joining the Earlham institute, I completed my undergraduate degree in Natural Sciences specialising in Plant Sciences at the University of Cambridge and a masters degree in Bioinformatics at the University of Bristol. My research project of the later used phylogenetics and 3D protein structure prediction to study proteins involved in soil erosion in wheat.
