My research covers a wide sweep of bioinformatics and genomics pertaining to pathogens of medical significance. My current work includes:

  • User acceptance and module testing for the Scalable Pathogen Pipeline Platform (SP3).
  • Development of a novel, clincally validated genomics pipelines for facilitating the analysis of pathogen genomes in clinical labs.
  • Bioinformatic analysis of environmentally collected waste water.
  • Comparative and evolutionary genomics of Welsh SARS-CoV2 genomes.

My primary focus is in attempting to leverage computational algorithms to facilitate the analysis of pathogen genomes, and working closely with teams within Public Health Wales to allow for seamless integration of novel methodologies and software into clinical use.
