I am an interdisciplinary scientist with a background in quantitative microscopy, bioimage analysis and data science currently working as a Lord Kelvin Adam Smith Research Fellow in Data Science within the Imaging Concepts Group at the University of Glasgow’s School of Physics and Astronomy.
My research interests are focussed on using data science and computer vision to improve bioimaging and analysis and enable better biology.
PhD in Bioimage Informatics, 2017
MSci in Biology & Physics within the Natural Sciences Programme (First Class), 2013

Earlier this week (29-30th October 2018) I attended a meeting at the Royal Society (London) with an aim of considering the UK scientific research culture - identifying challenges, highlighting best practice and considering what the future UK research culture can and should be. This meeting is a culmination of a two year programme of events and consultations (see here).
The meeting was full of inspiring speakers and great ideas and this and my next post are a really very brief summary of just some of the ideas and messages that particularly spoke to me. I have referenced speakers throughout but some of these points may be my own interpretation and opinion.
2018 has been a busy year so far (and I expect it will stay that way) but I’ve finally made time to write another blog post (and also to move my blog into my personal website). Given that so far this year I’ve spoken about my current research - imaging the beating zebrafish heart - to audiences of academics, the public & students I thought it was about time to do a blog post summarising said research. Hopefully this short post will provide you with an idea of what we’re trying to achieve, why and how we’re going about it (although I’ve kept off too much detail for now).
