 +===== Post-Doctoral Research fellow =====
 +
 +I work as part of the Midwest Consortium for Structural Genomics, aiding target selection and analysis of the novelty of the protein structures they produce. In parallel, I also develop methods for homology recognition and function prediction from protein structure and sequence.

 +  * 1998-2001 BSc(Hons) First Biochemistry, University of Warwick
 +  * 2001-2005 PhD Biochemistry (Computational Biology), University College London

 +===== Research Interests =====
 +
 +My PhD was focussed on developing novel methods to enhance the speed of structure classification in the CATH database. With this aim, I developed the structure comparison method CATHEDRAL to effectively decompose whole protein structures into their component domains. I have also been involved with the analysis of large, functional diverse domain superfamilies in CATH, and as a consequence have developed a method called FLORA to discriminate between differetn functional families within these superfamilies.
