Miss Madiha Shabbir
Research Assistant in Bioinformatics
Madiha did her BS (Hons) in Bioinformatics, MS in Computational Evolutionary Biology, and PhD research work in Computational Genomics from Pakistan in which she developed a tool to optimize denovo supertranscriptome assemblies using RNA-seq data.
During her PhD, she also was a visiting research scholar at Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at UoM, Ann Arbor, USA, where she worked as a bioinformatician to develop a method to fix paralogs-related assembly errors.
In June 2023, Madiha joined Dr. Capon’s Skin Inflammatory Genetics Group at King’s College London as a Research Assistant in Bioinformatics. In her current role, she explores transcriptomic data to identify cellular networks underlying severe multisystem atopic diseases.
