Research Software Associate
Taniya is a research software associate focussing her work on developing software to help researchers working with wet lab experiments analyse their research data in an easier and conventional manner. She pursued her undergraduate degree in Biotechnology where she performed wet lab experiments as a part of her degree and completed her masters at Cranfield University in Applied Bioinformatics. She did her thesis project with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine which involved her identifying genetic features which would help analysis of antibiotic resistance in Mycobacterium tuberculosis in a faster and less computationally intensive manner. She also worked on developing a R package that would help to identify signalling pathways which are active or inactive in contributing to progression of cancer in patients suffering from breast cancer. She aims to make an impact in the community of healthcare research.
