Hi There!

I’m a postdoctoral bioinformatics researcher doing research at the Babraham Institute, in the UK. I also do website design and photography.

I have a few other sites which may be of interest:

If you’re trying to hunt me down, I’ve put together a list of where I am on the web – if in doubt you can always drop me an e-mail!

What I Do // Science

I work at the Babraham Institute in Cambridge researching epigenetic reprogramming. I also hold a postdoctoral affiliate position with Trinity Hall.

I do bioinformatics research (computational analysis of biological data) into how epigenetic marks such as DNA methylation is changed in embryonic development, and how these changes affect the biology of the organism.

For further information, you can see my online CV.


I have released a few simple bioinformatic tools that I’ve written for general use on the web:

  • Labrador - a web based tool to manage projects and automate the processing of publicly available datasets.
  • Cluster Flow - a package written to run bioinformatics processing pipelines in a cluster environment.
  • Cytoband Converter - takes cytogenetic band (ideogram) names for mouse or human and converts them to genomic coordinates, or vice versa.
  • Sequences – simple, lightweight tool for finding the reverse compliment of DNA or RNA sequences. Also available on github.
  • Genome RE Sites – script to generate genomic coordinates for the recognition site of any restriction endonuclease in mouse or human.

You can see other tools released by the Babraham Bioinformatics group on our website.

What I Do // Web

I’ve been making websites for a number of years, ranging from scientific conference websites to event ticket sales sites and company brand websites.

I am registered as a sole trader in the UK under the name Customised Web. I’ve also put together a list of links showing my activity across sites on Where I am on the web.

I’m experienced in the common coding languages of the web: PHP, SQL, JavaScript, HTML amongst others, and am very experienced in development with WordPress.
