I am a Wellcome Trust PhD student in Mathematical Genomics and Medicine, jointly supervised between the MRC Biostatistics (Paul Kirk), Systems Biology (Kathryn Lilley) and the Computational Proteomics Unit (Laurent Gatto). I am interested in Fuctional Genomics and Proteomics; in particular spatial proteomics - the study of protein subcellular localisations. I am currently formalising mass-spectroscopy based spatial proteomics in the Bayesian setting to reveal insights into the uncertainty in protein localisation. I plan to extend this framework to model and infer proteins with multiple localisation as well as proteins which move dynamically under different cellular conditions. Finally, I plan to integrate multiple datasets that illucidate protein localisation including mass-spectroscropy data, protein-protein interaction, fluresence microscropy and the Gene Ontology.
