Research Interests

Text Mining

In my PhD ('An assessment of systems for gene/protein named entity recognition and interaction extraction') I have dealt with biomedical text mining: assessing its current state-of-the art, by examining various freely available systems that can be used to tackle this important task of mining the enormous body of biomedical literature. This PhD was done under supervision of Dr. Adrian Shepherd at Birkbeck College, University of London.

Microarray analysis

I am currently working as a postdoctoral research fellow on the AFOSR funded project : 'Cognitive vulnerability following extended wakefullness in defined genotypes'. I am working in the microarray lab with Prof. Colin Smith . The project is a joint project between the University of Surrey and the Surrey Sleep Research Centre
