My homepage I did my undergraduate degree in Physics and Mathematics (joint hon.s) then moved on to a PhD in theoretical and computational molecular biology gaining a foundation in protein structure. Combining protein structure with sequences coming out of genome projects I worked on protein domain analysis and evolution. I continue to work by applying bioinformatics tools to answer biological questions, sometimes developing new methods to achieve this goal, with awareness of evolution always a theme. My interests have now expanded from protein domains in cellular organisms in several dimensions, but based on the same principles to include: transcription, regulation and cell fate; non-coding sequence; intrinsically disordered proteins; function and phenotype prediction; viral evolution; mutation analysis; drug repurposing; continuous monitoring devices; directed evolution.
