I am a final-year PhD student working on the metabolomics of inflammatory diseases. To do this I combine metabolomic techniques, such as NMR, with cytokine expression and other assays to determine the function, importance and stability of metabolism in inflammatory diseases.

Parallel to laboratory research, I've developed a number of software tools to speed up the process of analysis interpretation of metabolomic data within a pathway context and interact with data from different sources. My published software is open source and available here.

Born in Leeds, I've lived in Barnoldswick, York, Edinburgh and I'm currently based at the University of Birmingham in Birmingham, United Kingdom.

I enjoy playing squash poorly and eating and drinking well. I also like a good hike, but don't do it as often as I like. I walked the West Highland Way in 1998 and 2013. It doesn't get easier with age.

Ik spreek een beetje Nederlands.

This was fixed by an upgrade to the Intel drivers that followed shortly afterwards.
