Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), Australian National University
Bachelor of Science, University of Bristol

Biography

My background is in theoretical physics and my research in the Human Genetics Unit is directed to understanding the genetic control of development. In collaboration with Dr Duncan Davidson I have developed the atlas-based concept for spatio-temporal databases in biomedicine and in particular the Edinburgh Mouse Atlas and associated databases (www.emouseatlas.org). In this context my research interests span image processing for 3D model reconstruction, spatio-temporal data-mapping, in situ gene-expression pattern analysis, bioinformatics, atlas-based biomedical databases, high throughput data capture and analysis, data/database interoperability and e-science.

Current Research Interests

My current research interests encompass biomedical atlas framneworks and associated techniques for mapping, visualising and analysing complex spatio-temporal data in the atlas context.
