I’m a Data Scientist at HDI interested in using genetic datasets and deep learning to improve our understanding of cancer.
Andrew completed a first degree in Chemistry before studying for an MSci in Systems Biology at Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge. He then spent the summer at HDI, where he developed an app to compare cancer incidence and treatment across NHS trusts.
He is currently in the final stages of a PhD at Cambridge, where he has used computational modelling to study the impact of genetic variants in G protein-coupled receptor genes on human health. During this work, he developed skills in applying machine learning which he is keen to put into practice at HDI.
In his spare time, Andrew enjoys playing goalball, a sport designed to include visually impaired and sighted players. He also loves spending time in the garden or hiking.
