Methylation RNA-Seq RNA-Structure

I am currently the Bioinformatics Facility Manager for the Centre for Trophoblast Research, University where I support approximately 30 research groups. Before joining the CTR I worked at Cambridge Epigenetix (CEGX) as a bioinformatician working on the development of epigenetics tools to enable single base resolution sequencing of methyl-cytosine (mC) and hydroxymethyl-cytosine (hmC).  Prior to this I was a senior postdoc in the Department of Biochemistry at University of Oxford, working on the RNA structural motifs required for mRNA localization and their interaction with trans-acting protein factors. I developed a wide range of novel bioinformatics and computational biology approaches, including high throughput RNA sequence analysis, microscope image analysis, RNA structure prediction and genome wide motif searches.
