Ricardo de Matos Simoes

 

I am a post-doctoral Computational Biologist supervised by Kate Williamson and Frank Emmert-Streib in the CCRCB (Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology, School of Medicine, Dentistry and Biomedical Sciences, Queen's University Belfast). Currently, I am working on haematuria patient classification, statistical analysis of clinical biomarkers and the implementation of tools to aid in the process of patient recruitment. My research is the development of new statistical methods for the analysis of clinical data, biological sequence data, microarray gene expression data, complex networks and methods to facilitate the interpretation of large-scale data analysis.
