If you wish to make a connection then you can find me on LinkedIn. I do not maintain any other social media, but I am happy to extend my network with people working in genomics, or working towards similar goals in environmental or conservation science. I currently work for NatureMetrics in Guildford, Surrey.
My scientific activty over the years is handily summarised on ORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0001-8978-8129
My background is originally in developmental biology, but I have worked across all kingdoms of life, from crops to clinical genomics. I’ve been producing and analysing sequencing data since the days of pouring my own polyacrylamide gels and Sanger sequencing with radioactive isotopes.
These days I’m mostly interested in the use of genomics to assess and protect biodiversity, NGS technologies, qPCR/ddPCR, lab automation and bioinformatics.
I like to donate my unused compute cycles for scientific research. I contribute to the following projects: Africa Rainfall Project, Mapping Cancer Markers, and contributed to OpenPandemics and the Microbiome Immunity Project.
