I lead the Environmental 'Omics Lab in Infrastructure & Environment Division, School of Engineering that I established soon after I was awarded the NERC Independent Research Fellowship back in November, 2014. The purpose of my research is to integrate different sources of 'omics data (metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, metabolomics, and metaproteomics) in environmental science for microbial community analysis. I regularly work on projects where we want to understand the taxonomic and functional diversity of microbial community in the context of metadata often recorded under specific hypotheses. Integrating these datasets require a fair deal of multivariate statistical analysis for which I have shared the code on this website. Those who are new to metagenomics may find my online tutorials listed under Bioinformatics useful. Since 2016, I am trying to expand my research to engineering projects that now include: Raman spectroscopy enabled microfluidics; a hardware system for integrating liquid handling, incubation and sensing; and development of artificial intestinal Salmon gut system through bioreactors. My long-term research vision is to develop specialised and bespoke systems (both hardware and software) that can exploit and harness the power of microbial communities (also including statistical tools), and to place Glasgow at the helm of excellence in innovative cutting-edge bioengineering solutions.
