Personal profile


I am a computational biologist that completed my PhD in systems biology with focus on dynamic metabolic modelling, which integrated proteomic data and metabolic flux data. Following that, I worked on metagenomics research applying various computational and mathematical approaches (e.g. machine learning and Bayesian modelling) to study the human lung microbiome associated with asthma. Currently I am in the Centre for Genetics and Genomics studying rheumatoid arthritis treatment with the aim of personalising treatment. This involves analysing genetics, transcriptomics and metabolomics data, both separately and in an integrated manner.
