I am a Turing Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute where I run a research group of computer scientists focused on the application of Artifical Intelligence (AI) to problems in the life sciences. I also run an interest group dedicated to the topic of learning the organisational principles of living systems. We are building intelligent systems capable of determining the basic operating principles of biology.
I am also an Associate Professor of biophysics at University College London (UCL) where I run a research group comprising a team of physicists, computer scientists and biologists. We develop state-of-the-art quantitative imaging and measurement tools. I teach topics ranging from biochemistry to optics, imaging and machine learning.
I gained my Ph.D. in biophysics from the University of Cambridge and conducted my postdoctoral research in the physics department at the University of California, Berkeley, before moving to London to take up a faculty position at UCL.
