Matt completed his PhD in Complexity Sciences from UoBristol in 2017 and has since been part of Prof. John Terry's Quantitative Biology & Medicine @Exeter (QBME) group, first as a PDRF and then as an Industrial RF from 2019. His research focusses on industrial and clinical collaboration, and spans the interface between mathematical modelling, machine learning classification (MLC) and cell/molecular biology in cancer, diabetes and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).
Current & recent projects:
- Developing MLC algorithms to improve the efficiency of RNAi drug screening methods for cancer and a range of other diseases.
- Applying MLC algorithms to identify clinically actionable factors that cause loss of drug response in IBD patients.
- Implementing species distribution models and MLC algorithms for the advancement of industrial pest control methods.
- Investigating the interactions between fatty acids and autophagy in diabetes using molecular methods and novel computer vision techniques.
- Broadening invasive species distribution models without the loss of significant predictive power.
Research themes: machine learning classification; complex networks; cell & molecular biology; image analysis & computer vision; and spatio-temporal modelling.
