Leanne Massie

I am a BBSRC funded PhD student in the group, co-supervised by Prof. Vincent Jansen at Royal Holloway, and will be simulating the optimal conditions for biosynthetic algae to produce lipids for biofuels starting in Oct 2017. I am currently reading for my second masters degree: Imperial’s MSc in Bioinformatics and Theoretical Systems Biology (directed by Prof. Stumpf) as an introductory year to the group and my PhD.

I have already obtained an MSc from Imperial in Computational Methods in Ecology and Evolution and a BA from the University of Cambridge in Natural Sciences (Plant Sciences) at Newnham College. Previous project include building a simulation of a community of human gut bacteria of varying group sizes and plant/insect interactions.
