After a brief stint with Willie Taylor at NIMR, I became self-employed, helping OML with commercialization of my software, and writing other scientific software including for the National Grid Company and Bradwell Nuclear Power Station. I then spent two months working at the DKfz in Heidelberg before joining Janet Thornton's group at UCL. I then became a temporary lecturer at UCL seconded 4 days a week to a spinout company, Inpharmatica, before moving to the University of Reading as a lecturer in 1999 and returning to UCL as a lecturer then senior lecturer in 2004.
My main interests are in (1) sequence, structure and function of antibodies, (2) effects of mutation on protein structure and function, (3) protein modelling, (4) software development for Bioinformatics.
I give first year tutorials on experimental biochemistry and second year tutorials on protein structure. I give introductionary bioinformatics lectures to second year students as well as lectures on protein energetics, protein folding and antibody structure. I teach extensively on the third year bioinformatics module and on the Birkbeck/UCL Bioinformatics MSc. I teach bioinformatics for drug design, antibody structure and patent issues on the MSc in drug design. I am also coordinator for Peer Assisted Learning in the department and run the third year Biosciences in Business and Media module where I teach session on patents and intellectual property.
