I am currently a postgraduate student enrolled on the integrated research programme in Next Generation Computational Modelling (NGCM) with the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training.

My research involves using a Monte Carlo molecular simulation process as well as other statistical methods to investigate which genes are involved in the development of different diseases. The aim of this research is to develop an analysis that can identify potential disease candidate genes. This would stimulate rapid transition toward ‘personalised’ treatment. I will be working on this project with Dr. Andrew Collins.
