|Research Programme:||EMAP: eMouse Atlas Project|
My background is in theoretical physics and my research in the Human Genetics Unit is directed to understanding the genetic control of development. In collaboration with Dr Duncan Davidson I have developed the atlas-based concept for spatio-temporal databases in biomedicine and in particular the Edinburgh Mouse Atlas and associated databases (www.e-mouseatlas.org). In this context my research interests span image processing for 3D model reconstruction, spatio-temporal data-mapping, in situ gene-expression pattern analysis, bioinformatics, atlas-based biomedical databases, high throughput data capture and analysis, data/database interoperability and e-science.

Research in a Nutshell
My current research interests encompass biomedical atlas framneworks and associated techniques for mapping, visualising and analysing complex spatio-temporal data in the atlas context.
