About

Hi! I’m Oliver Crook a graduate student on the Wellcome Trust Mathematical Genomics and Medicine PhD at Darwin College, Cambridge.

I am supervised by Laurent Gatto, Paul DW Kirk and Kathryn Lilley working on Bayesian methodology for spatial Proteomics, inferring proteins with multiple locations using mass spectroscopy, computationally efficient Bayesian inference and data integration.

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