University of Bradford
Bradford, United Kingdom
Following graduation in mathematics and applied statistics at the Wroclaw University in Poland. I continued my education at the University of Bradford studying computational modelling of the yeast cell cycle where I obtained a MPhil degree in Bioinformatics. In 2009 I visited the Biotechnology Research Institute of the National Research Council Canada where my research involved computer simulation of molecular signalling cascades governing the development and differentiation of skin appendages. In 2010 I was awarded a ESPRC PhD fellowship in the Centre of Skin Sciences, University of Bradford. This allowed me to develop an expertise in bioinformatics and computational biology of transcriptional and epigenetic regulation in the epidermis. My PhD research project on the bioinformatics analyses of multi-level regulation of epidermis development together with external collaborations resulted in a number of published articles in journals such as Journal of Cell Biology, FASEB, Development and Journalof Investigative Dermatology. I was awarded the Best Paper Prize at the World Congress of Hair Research in Edinburgh in 2013. The same year I joined the Faculty of Life Sciences at the University of Bradford as a Lecturer in Bioinformatics. I teach computational biology, medical genetics and statistics and act as a personal tutor to first year students of the biomedical science undergraduate program. I am a research active academic with interest in the identification of novel genomics biomarkers that influence tissue development and disease. I am involved in the international scientific collaborations (MRC UK-China Stem Cell Partnership Initiative grant) and my research is regulatory published in peer-review journals. I participate in the international focus groups with aim to develop and provide bioinformatics and medical informatics training for biomedical students and staff. I am an Associate Member of the EpiGenSys and a Member of the Royal Society Biology.
