Biography

From 2004-2006, I was a graduate researcher in the Computational Intelligence Research Group in the Department of Information Technology at NUIG. Here, my work focused on the development of evolutionary algorithms to explore the adoption of deceptive communication strategies in online auctions.

From 2006 to 2009, I was a doctoral researcher in the Genome Informatics Group at the National Centre for Biomedical Engineering Science (NCBES), where I developed both pipelines and machine learning approaches (primarily neural networks and genetic algorithms) for the analysis of whole-genome sequencing data. These approaches were applied to the analysis of data from a mouse model of 22q11.2 deletion syndrome to better understand the role of the Tbx1 transcription factor in neuronal development and social/behavioural phenotypes. 

In 2009, I was a visiting researcher in the Computational and Statistical Epigenomics Group, in the Department of Genetics at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York where I was part of a team responsible for developing the WASP system - an integrated sample processing, tracking, and analysis platform for a genomics core facility. I subsequently spent six years (2009-2015) as a bioinformatician at Einstein between the Departments of Genetics (Div. of Computational Genetics) and Medicine (Endocrinology)/Diabetes Research Center (DRC), working with data from a wide variety of genomics/proteomics/metabolomics platforms and assays.
 
In 2015, I returned to Galway as a Lecturer in Bioinformatics/Biomedical Genomics within the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Applied Mathematics, where I helped establish the MSc in Biomedical Genomics and MSc in Computational Genomics (now MSc in Genomics Data Science) for which I currently serve as Programme Director. 

Research Interests

I am a PI in the Bioinformatics and Biostatistics Research Cluster where my group is primarily interested in the development and application of statistical/machine learning methods with a particular focus on genomics applications in immunology, cancer and neuroscience.

I am affiliated with NICOG, the Center for Neuroimaging and Cognitive Genomics, DSI, the Data Science Institute, and the SFI Centre for Research Training (CRT) in Genomics Data Science, where I lead the Methods, Frameworks & Infrastructure Research Theme.

My research has been funded by SFI, HRB, IRC, and the European Commission.
