Dr Allan Tucker
Department of Computer Science, Brunel University London
I am interested in data mining, machine learning and Big data, with a focus on biological, clinical and ecological domains. As a Senior Lecturer at Brunel University London I have worked in conjunction with Leiden University Medical School and UCL on gene regulatory networks and this work is currently being expanded to explore networks across systems of increasing complexity. My current projects include modelling high dimensional gene expression data (focussing on integration of multiple studies for wheat) with Rothamsted research, modelling visual field test data from Moorfield’s Eye Hospital, and exploring the dynamics of fish populations in the Northern Atlantic using hidden Markov models and other state space models in conjunction with the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans and DEFRA.
