I carry a BSc Honours degree in Computer Science and Mathematics as well as an MSc in Information Technology from the University of Glasgow. My current doctoral research at the University of Glasgow entails the development of a software tool to restore low-resolution 2D images in order to improve 3D models calculated from them.
Currently, I am developing a diagnostic tool for viral infection detection based on a k-mer approach. The software will enable diagnosticians to perform rapid testing for viral pathogens by using HTS data. The tool is generic such that it allows for samples from a wide range of viruses and hosts. It is designed to optimise speed and memory usage so that it can run on machines with limited resources.
