Research interests

Computational Biology and Molecular Evolution

We focus on understanding the genetics and organisation of the human molecular system with a view to advancing knowledge of disease be it due to infection (particularly by viruses) or genome mutations. Evolution is what explains life and its many forms, and so its study is of central importance to understanding molecular systems and how they coevolve, e.g., molecular interactions, viruses with either their bacterial or eukaryote hosts, single-celled versus multi-cellular life etc. Examples of projects include: viral diversity & evolution, viral-host interaction networks, metagenomics & the virome, human disease & mutation, viral analysis workflows and digital signal processing for NGS data.
