I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in the Information, Data and Analysis section in the School of Computing Science. My research focuses on extracting biomedical knowledge from published research literature using different natural language processing and machine learning methods. This helps researchers to find important research knowledge and paves the way for representing biological knowledge computationally that artificial intelligence can reason on. I’ve focused in areas of precision medicine which tries to tailor treatment to an individual patient’s genetics and frequently relies on the latest research findings.
Before I moved to Glasgow, I spent two years at Stanford University as a postdoctoral researcher in the Helix Group. I received my Ph.D. in Bioinformatics from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada where I undertook research at Canada’s Michael Smith Genome Sciences Centre at BC Cancer. I completed my B.Eng. degree at the University of Edinburgh in Software Engineering.
More about my work and information about working with me can be found on my personal website.
