Dr. Daniel Wells


I develop methods for genomic risk prediction in diverse sets of populations.

During my DPhil at the University of Oxford I used sparse Bayesian matrix factorisation to analyse single cell gene expression, discovering novel targets for further study. For one of these targets I analysed ChIP-seq datasets to uncover its role in meiotic recombination.
For my undergraduate degree I studied biochemistry, also at the University of Oxford, where I went on to specialise in immunology and virology for my masters.

Outside of work I like to play the flute and contribute to Wikimedia projects.
