Research interests

I am a bioinformatician working in CVR Bioinformatics at the Medical Research Council-University of Glasgow Centre for Virus (CVR). My current research focuses on:

  • Intra and inter-host viral diversity and evolution: using high-throughput sequencing to monitor viral evolution both within and between hosts: FMDV, Rabies, West Nile Virus, Ebola, Classical Swine Fever. As part of this I develop computational tools to aid in the visualisation and analysis of viral high-throughput sequence data: DiversiTools, VALVS, vNvS.
  • Viral host adaptation: using Synthetical Attenuated Viral Engineering (SAVE) aproaches to deoptimise viral sequences relative to their host (using codon-pair and dinucleotide biases) to generate candidate vaccines, and using viral sequence data and biases to predict their hosts, evaluating host adaptation, and determine zoonotic risk.
  • Metagenomics: using metagenomics approaches for virus discovery in a range of environments from vampire bats and mosquioties in South America to honeybees and ticks in the UK.
  • Epidemic modelling: using computational methods to model the spatial spread of bovine tuberculosis, FMDV and bluetongue virus in the UK and evaluate how best to control them
  • Systems biology of cell signalling: computational modelling of the EGFR and MAPK pathways, where I investigated the drug resistance properties of different cancerous mutations to identify the best targets for drug intervention, focussing on the role of negative feedback loops.
  • Viral taxonomy: I previosuly spent 50% of my time working for the International Committee on the Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) on a Wellcome Trust bioresource grant (WT108418AIA) entitled "A database for the universal classification of viruses: development of an open access model for the dissemination of classification information and virus descriptions" with Andrew Davison, Peter Simmonds and Stuart Siddell. As part of this, I was the Technical Editor of the ICTV Report, and am also a member of the ICTV Herpesviridae Study Group.
