I am investigating how gene expression states of cells are linked to cell contact neighbourhoods in tissues. Cataloging and comparing the patterns of cell-cell contacts, their transcriptional dependencies and consequences is essential for understanding the molecular rules that govern both the structure of tissues and the context-dependent cell functions.

I use single-cell transcriptomics of isolated cells, highly-multiplexed large-scale in-situ quantification of gene expression and systems biology tools to characterise transcriptional states of neighbouring cells. To interpret scRNA-seq & spatial gene expression and ask quantitative questions I develop probabilistic models of the underlying generative process.

We all need ambition. We all need a clear vision, a vision of the world, a vision of your field, etc. Ambitions are just a vision of your role in it and how exactly you are going to achieve it.
