Siobhan Mc Mahon
I am a PhD student supervised by Professor Michael Stumpf and funded by the Division of Natural Sciences at Imperial College London. I previously studied at King’s College London, where I obtained a BSc Hons degree in Molecular Genetics, after which I continued on to an MSc in Bioinformatics and Theoretical Systems Biology at Imperial College.
The aim of my research is to compare dynamical features and information processing capability of cellular signalling processes, by applying information theoretic concepts such as mutual information, to signalling pathways. This will be done in collaboration with Prof. Amanda Fisher and Prof. Matthias Merkenschlager, who specialise in lymphocyte development.
