Principal Bioinformatician Cancer Genome Project Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute
I am primarily focused on development and coordination of infrastructure to support the scientific staff within the group.
Recently this has involved improving our external interactions through code release and a large involvement in the ICGC/TCGA PanCancer projects technical and QC working groups.
BSc. (Hons) Biomedical Sciences, The University of Durham 2001
MSc. Bioinformatics, The University of Manchester 2002
Initially my career within the Cancer Genome Project focused on the development of Laboratory Management Systems for high throughput capillary sequencing. Subsequently I worked to develop tools to automate the analysis of these.
Between 2007 and 2009 I worked in the pharmaceutical industry as a clinical programmer.
I returned to CGP in 2009 to develop a mapping and analysis system for NGS analysis.
