Work and interests
Erin’s research involved the analysis of proteomic data from the Fenland study, focusing on the changes to the proteome that occur throughout the ageing process. More broadly, Erin’s research interests include the exploration and interpretation of large ‘omics datasets, using methods from data and network science to improve our understanding of disease biology. She left the Unit in September 2021.
Background and experience
After completing undergraduate studies in Computer Science at University College London, Erin obtained her PhD in bioinformatics from Cambridge University. Her PhD work centred on the identification of disease relationships through the integration of different types of biological data, with a particular focus on cross-disease gene expression patterns.
