Scientific Interest and Avenues for Collaboration My research is focused on analysing cellular infiltration in the virally infected CNS, and understanding how the haematopoietic system is reorganised in the bone marrow to change cellular output in response to infection. To do this, we utilise high-dimensional cytometry systems (such as mass cytometry and 29-parameter next generation fluorescence cytometry), to interrogate cellular systems in a range of disease contexts. To aid our analysis, we apply and improve existing computational analysis tools, in addition to developing our own novel algorithms for analysing high dimensional datasets. All of this work is performed in a team context, and we are always eager for new collaborations on multiple fronts.
