Dr Pavlos Antoniou
Principal Software Developer
I am a principal software developer/informatician for the Human Genetics Informatics group. I work closely with the faculty of Human Genetics to develop informatics solutions to analyse and visualise genomic data from population studies utilising current technologies. I enjoy creating user-friendly and interactive applications that contrinute to the presentation and analysis of biological data.
I am currently involved in developing software solutions to analyse genome-wide association studies datasets from two projects of the human genetics faculty. I am using hail, a python based data analysis tool that uses spark technologies to distribute the data on cloud clusters.
I have a background in genetics, computer science and bioinformatics and have worked as a cancer analyst for Genomics England but also as a lead clinical bioinformatician for the NHS. I am an HCPC registered clinical scientist and I have worked on diagnostic pipelines and clinical software development for many years.
