I started my PhD in 2019 as part of the AI4Health Centre for Doctoral Training. As a member of The Stevens Group and The Computational Optimisation Group, my research focuses on using machine learning to better design lab experiments. I use Bayesian methods, including Gaussian processes and Bayesian optimisation, to more intelligently select which experiments to run.

Currently, I am working on developing a transfer learning method for the design of PCR (Polymerase chain reaction) experiments.
