I am a research student in the Artificial Intelligence Group of the School of Computer Science at the University of Manchester. My research is under the supervision of Dr Magnus Rattray.

Research Interests

      My main interest is in benchmarking microarray analysis methods. To date I have worked almost exclusively with expression arrays, mainly Affymetrix GeneChip arrays but also Illumina bead arrays. In the future I plan to be more involved with single-nucleotide polymorphism arrays (SNP chips), and in particular in benchmarking analysis methods for genome-wide association (GWA) studies.
