DPhil in Computational Discovery

I have a project advertised as part of the DPhil in Computational Discovery programme at the University of Oxford to start in October 2023. This programme is jointly run with IBM and benefits from their applied research in machine learning and other shared areas of interest.

The project (Project 6) aims to develop graph-based convolutional machine learning methods able to integrate protein structure, genetic, chemical and evolutional information and thence predict if specific alleles confer resistance to one (or more) antibiotics.

If that sounds interesting and you’d like to study it for your DPhil (i.e. PhD) with me, please apply to the programme directly as all  applications are handled centrally. Applications close on 1 March 2023.
