Welcome to my web pages!
I am a Professor in the Department of Computer Science in the School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, where I am Deputy Head of Computer Science and I am heading the Biomedical Informatics Systems Engineering Lab (BISEL).
I also work as a Visiting Biomedical Informatics Research Scientist in the Mouse Atlas Group at the MRC Human Genetics Unit, which is part of the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine (IGMM) at Edinburgh University.
As part of my collaborations with Edinburgh University I currently hold an appointment as Honorary Fellow based in the Deanery of Biomedical Sciences, in the College of Medicine & Veterinary Medicine.
"By academic freedom I understand the right to search for truth and to publish and teach what one holds to be true. This right implies also a duty: one must not conceal any part of what one has recognized to be true."
— Albert Einstein
