Matt is an Industrial Research Fellow in Prof. John Terry's Quantitative Biology & Medicine at Exeter (QBME) group. His research focusses on industrial and clinical collaboration, and spans the interface between mathematical modelling and cell/molecular biology in cancer, diabetes and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).

Current research projects:

  • Investigating the interactions between fatty acids and autophagy in diabetes using molecular methods and novel computer vision techniques.
  • Using computer algorithms to improve the efficiency of RNAi drug screening methods for a range of diseases.
  • Applying machine learning algorithms to identify clinically actionable factors to aid in the diagnosis of IBD.
  • Implementation of species distribution models and machine learning for the advancement of industrial pest control methods.

Areas of expertise:

  • Biochemistry & molecular biology
  • Systems Biology & complex networks
  • Image analysis & computer vision
  • Machine learning
  • Spatio-temporal modelling
  • Industrial collaboration
