Obtained my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Manchester in 2005 following my MPhil and BSc degrees from the same university. Shortly after my postgraduate study, I worked briefly as a visiting lecturer at Harrow School of Computer Science, University of Westminster in London.
I then moved back to Manchester to take up a postdoctoral researcher position in a LINK Applied Genomics research project entitled HUSERMET (the human serum metabolome in health and disease) from 2005 to 2009 and was also a member of the Bioanalytical Sciences Group which is located inside Manchester Interdisciplinary Biocentre (MIB).
After four wonderful years of postdoctoral research work in Manchester, I relocated to the city of Grenoble in the southeastern region of France. During my time in Grenoble, I worked as a research engineer as part of a EU funded project, namely QUAERO, and based in the Laboratoire d’Informatique de Grenoble (Grenoble Informatics Laboratory), Université Joseph Fourier (Joseph Fourier University) in Grenoble, France.
Currently, I am the Head of Research Data Services at the University of Melbourne in Melbourne, Australia.
