Thalia Chan

I am a PhD student, funded by the BBSRC. My primary focus is the inference of gene regulatory networks from single cell data, using information theoretical approaches.



I gained an MSc in Bioinformatics and Theoretical Systems Biology from Imperial College (with distinction) in 2015. Prior to this I completed the first three years of an MBBS in medicine at King’s College London, my current research being intercalated into this degree. I hold a BA in Music from the University of Cambridge, which I completed in 2007.

My interests outside of research include teaching maths and contributing to open source software projects.
