Hi! I’m Olly a Florence Nightingale Fellow (Senior Research Associate) in the Department of Statistics, University of Oxford working with Charlotte Deane and I am a Todd-Bird Junior Research Fellow in Biochemistry at New College. 

I am currently on secondment to the UK AISI as a research scientist.

In 2024, I will start my own research group in the Kavli Institute for Nanoscience Discovery, Oxford. Watch this space! Please reach out if you are interested in working with me.

I was a graduate student on the Wellcome Trust Mathematical Genomics and Medicine PhD at Darwin College, Cambridge, where I was supervised by Laurent Gatto, Paul DW Kirk and Kathryn Lilley working on Bayesian methodology for spatial Proteomics. My PhD work led to a Peter-Landshoff prize and the Young Biometrician Award 

I previously worked with Gordon Smith, head of Obstetrics & Gynaecology at the school of clinical medicine school subtyping pre-eclampsia.


If you would like to work we with me on a topic related to my work then please reach out. Students wishing to do summer projects are also possible and there are potential sources of funding. Some topics I am currently interested in, though new ideas are welcome:

Bayesian methods for Thermal Proteome Profiling

Integrating spatial proteomics data with single-cell transcriptomics

Probabilitic approaches to Hydrogen-Deteurium Exchange MS

Method development for computational biosecurity (attribution and detection)

General application of Bayesian and non-parametric Bayesian methods


I am open to collaborations and welcome those with complex biological questions to reach out.
