After a PhD and a postdoc in theoretical particle physics, I joined Christophe Fraser's group, initially at Imperial College London and now here in the Big Data Institute. I work on HIV genomics as part of the BEEHIVE project: analysing viral genetic data, in conjunction with patient clinical data, to gain insight into the viral-molecular basis of infection severity.
Viral genetic variation accounts for a third of variability in HIV-1 set-point viral load in Europe.
