 Full Profile

My primary research interest is Computational Biology / Bioinformatics. I develop methods to analyse large-scale biological datasets and apply these methods to obtain insight into how biological systems function. A particular focus of my work is the development of approaches to understand how mutations in cancer rewire tumour cells (see description here) and the identification of targeted treatments in cancer (see our resource www.cancergd.org). I am a group leader in Systems Biology Ireland and you can read a little more about the biological focus of my work there

Computational research areas : machine learning | network analysis | data integration
