I am a PhD student in the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Group, supervised by Dr Pietro Lio', and a Cambridge Trust Scholar (Cambridge International Scholarship). I am developing tools and algorithms for the analysis and data integration of various types of spatial genomic data (such as Hi-C, 5C and FISH), using network statistics, machine learning and signal processing methods.
