Research interests

My research targets (epi)genomics and genome dynamics through the development of highly quantitative methods for defining the structure and dynamics of (epi)genome, gene regulatory pathways, involved macromolecules and their interaction networks. I am interested in combining computational biology, computational chemistry (QM, MD), advanced predictive modelling (machine learning) and experimental biophysical techniques to reach a new level of precision in structural systems biology at both genome and proteome levels. Other interests span the origin of life research, prebiotic pathway exploration and weak intermolecular forces.


About us

The Cambridge Big Data Strategic Research Initiative brings together researchers from across the University to address challenges presented by our access to unprecedented volumes of data. Our research spans all six Schools of the University, from the underlying fundamentals in mathematics and computer science, to applications ranging from astronomy and bioinformatics, to medicine, social science and the humanities

In parallel, our research addresses important issues around law, ethics and economics, in order to apply Big Data to solve challenging problems for society.

Cambridge Big Data supports collaboration and knowledge transfer in this growing field.
