Sonal Henson

Interests My interests are in genomics and how genomic data can be used to answer biological questions. Having spent most of my life in the Tropics, diseases that afflict the global South interest me in particular. My work I am…

Nilam Khan

Interests I am interested in management of public health data (e.g. birth cohorts) captured through mixed methods and/or quasi-experimental study designs. The whole process of data management interests me; from data clean-up, visualization, reporting missing data, storage and data sharing…

Manuel Lera Ramirez profile picture

Manuel Lera Ramírez

Interests  I am interested in data standardisation in the context of genetic research. That means standardising genotypes (engineered DNA changes concerning a reference genome present in a strain) and phenotypes (biological consequences of that genotype that researchers characterise). This started…

Krister Jazz Urog

Interests  I am passionate about optimisation and high-performance computing for scientific software. My research interests originally started with complex systems research focusing on biological systems. Modelling biological systems through graph theory and cellular automata introduced me to scientific software development. …

Interests My research and training interests lie in a wide range of biological and biomedical sciences fields, from comparative genomics and evolutionary studies to neuroscience research and personalised medicine. I am interested in developing and delivering material in several aspects of bioinformatics and biological data management. My teaching philosophy is the generation of an opportunity to inspire and empower, comprised of a combination of course instruction and student mentorship. I’m aiming at fostering the acquisition of a base of concepts and learning skills to facilitate a person to engage in further learning and independent thinking. My work I am mainly focused on studying the molecular mechanism of neuropsychological disorders and brain tumours. I aim to investigate the molecular origins of diseases and develop novel methods for diagnosis and prognosis, such as designing more targeted treatment strategies. It involves methods originating from systems biology, NGS and “omics” technologies, large multi-dimensional data integration and interpretation, and clinical informatics. I am also the course leader of the MSc in Bioinformatics and the module leader of several modules at the MSc and BSc levels related to data analysis and data management. In my free time, I regularly organise and deliver bioinformatics and data analysis workshops at several Universities across the UK and other European countries profile picture

Adam Partridge profile picture

Adam Partridge

Interests My research background is in cognitive neuroscience, human neuroimaging and neurostimulation. Specifically, I have used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to investigate low-level auditory processing further. Through my own research, I became interested in novel…
