I am an early-stage researcher in the fields of comparative genomics, bioinformatics and phylogenetics, with a particular expertise in mammalian biology. I received my BSc in Genetics and Bioinformatics at National University of Ireland, Maynooth and my PhD in Bioinformatics at UCD. I was awarded a Science Foundation Ireland Industry Fellowship (2018-2019) to work as part of NSilico Lifesciences Ltd for a year. I am interested in a number of different aspects of biology, specifically comparative genomics and evolution, bioinformatics software development and microbiomics.
