Bio: Mel Chen (PhD student)
Mel Chen joined us from Australia in autumn 2015. He is lead supervised by Liam Watson in Maths & Stats and 50% co-supervised by Kathryn on the multidiscipliary project "Convergence, connectivity, and continuity: Topological perspectives for mining novel biological information from genomics". Mel was the winner of a very competitive scholarship for this project from the Lord Kelvin Adam Smith programme from the University of Glasgow. While based in maths, Mel spends lots of time here in the Roof Labs getting his hands mucky with some DNA and RNA sequences.
