My main research interests are in protein structure prediction and
analysis, simulations of protein folding, Hidden Markov Model methods,
transmembrane protein analysis, machine learning applications in
bioinformatics, de novo protein design methodology, and genome
analysis including the application of intelligent software agents. New
areas of research include the use of high throughput computing and Grid
technology for bioinformatics applications, analysis and prediction of
protein disorder, expression array data analysis
and the analysis and prediction of protein function and protein-protein
I was also one of the founders of UCL "spin out" company Inpharmatica Ltd. The company, which at one point employed over 100 people, was bought by
Galapagos NV in 2007. More on Inpharmatica here and here.
I coordinate the "Intelligent Systems in Bioinformatics" module (GI10) on the
M.Sc. Intelligent Systems degree. I also contribute lectures to the 3rd year
UG Bioinformatics module (BIOC3010) in the Dept. of Biochemistry.
