M.Phil. (Bioinformatics), Ph.D (Theoretical Physics)

Theoretical physicist come modeller and data scientist. My MPhil thesis used linear classification methods (both Bayesian and logistic regression) to identify subtypes of asthma according to their exclusive predictors, but its main contribution was to infer networks of asthma-related variables from Markov Chain Monte-Carlo inferencing methods.

More recently, I added neural networks (specifically multilayer perceptrons) and support vector regression (using radial basis functions) to a published molecular modelling package called BioPPSy.

My papers include mathematical analysis, numerical solutions, and computer simulations.

I am available on a consulting basis for any project requiring data-analytic or other modelling skills.
