Dr. Leonor Sánchez-Busó
Public Health Bioinformatician
Analyses antimicrobial resistance and population dynamics in the gonococcus.
Principal Software Developer
Enjoys making tools which are simple to use and run quickly.
Dr. Anthony Underwood
Bioinformatics Implementation Manager
An advocate for translational bioinformatics, taking best practice approaches from research and implementing them in the public health domain. Focused on making reproducible open source pipelines accessible to all.
Dr. Nicole Wheeler
Postdoctoral Fellow - Machine Learning
Uses statistics and machine learning to gain novel insights from data.
Dr. Corin Yeats
Works across a wide range of genomics and sequence-based research both theoretical (e.g. protein function evolution) and for applied software development (e.g. antimicrobial resistance prediction). Currently focussed on the application of genomics analysis software in the public health context.
