Biography

Michelle obtained her PhD in Applied Bioinformatics at Reading University, focusing on the evolution of amino acid repeats (2006 – 2011). During her PhD she worked as a staff scientist at the Mammalian Genome Unit (MGU), Harwell, Oxfordshire and then she progressed to lead a small team of computational biologist in the Bioinformatics Department focusing on mammalian genome to phenome associations using a variety of ‘Omic’ data, on multiple therapy groups, as well as co-supervising doctoral and master students.

She is currently a Senior Bioinformatician at the Hub for Applied Bioinformatics (HAB). Within the HAB she collaborates with faculty members from clinicians to students, exploring new methods for multiomic data analysis alongside facilitating Bioinformatic studies.
