I am currently in the final year of my PhD, which I began in 2014, in the Algorithms + Data Analysis research group in the Department of Informatics at King's College London. I have submitted my thesis + am yet to have my viva.

My research falls within the intersection of computer science and biology, specifically: algorithms for computational molecular biology. 

 

Under the supervision of Prof. Costas S. Iliopoulos and Dr. Solon P. Pissis, I work on designing string algorithms for solving problems in biological sequence analysis. This includes problems in genome assembly, pattern matching + sequence alignment.

If you don't know much about this specific area of research, for an overview, have a look at this presentation I delivered to MSc Computer Science students at King's College London for their Advanced Research Methods module.

If you know the field quite well, have a look at my publications + get in touch if you would like to collaborate.
