I’m a bioinformatician, working at the University of York, with a focus on analysis of genomic and transcriptomic data.

Previously, I was Head of Digital Content at Pimoroni, creating learning materials and keeping their online shop spick and span.

Before that, I’ve studied for a PhD looking at iron acquisition and its role in the virulence of Pasteurella multocida causing pneumonia in cattle, at the Moredun Research Institute. I’ve also worked as a postdoc, building metabolic models of the nutritional symbiosis between aphids and their bacterial symbionts Buchnera, and as the C2D2 (Centre for Chronic Diseases and Disorders) bioinformatician, both also at the University of York.

In my spare time, I enjoy tinkering with electronics, especially the Raspberry Pi, photography, and many more things besides.
