I provide Bioinformatics support for projects in FABI. Some of the major projects I have worked on include the assembly and annotation of the genomes of two wasps, a nematode and several fungal species. I work closely with postgraduate students and postdocs on various studies. I also work as a lab technician and molecular biologist.
