Research summary

My research focuses on computational systems biology, drawing together information from DNA sequences, protein structures and other experimental data to study the evolution and function of biological systems. This work includes the reconstruction and evolutionary modelling of a variety of biological networks, including models of cellular metabolism, protein-protein interactions and gene regulation. The analysis of these large and complex data sets can produce results that are not easily summarised by conventional means. I am therefore also interested in the development of new information visualization strategies for various types of biological data. The application of these methods to study the various networks of interactions between host and pathogen has great potential for the discovery of new therapeutic targets in infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis.
