I am currently a Chancellor's Fellow in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh.
My current research focuses on applications of statistical methodologies to problems in Systems Biology and Bioinformatics, specifically:
- Graphical modelling of gene regulatory networks
- Statistical analysis of protein-protein interaction networks
- Building flexible biological models using Bayesian nonparametrics
- GPGPU methods for large scale inference
- Derivative processes for modelling metabolic fluxes. Žurauskienė J, Kirk P, Thorne T, Pinney J, Stumpf M, Bioinformatics, 2014
