Personal profile

Research interests

My interests span a number of topics at the interface between computer science and biology, including bio-inspired computing, computational biology, and biomedical data mining. Currently my research focuses on biochemical models of connectionism, with applications in complex systems control and robotics, and methods for finding complex, dynamical patterns within biomedical data, with applications in the diagnosis and understanding of neurodegenerative diseases.

Biography

I am an Associate Professor in the School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences at Heriot-Watt University. I have MEng and PhD degrees from the University of York, awarded in 1999 and 2003 respectively. Following my PhD, I held an ERCIM Fellowship at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. I then worked for 8 years as a researcher at the University of York, before moving to Heriot-Watt in 2013, where I now run the Complex Systems Laboratory.
