Hi, welcome to my site.
My name is Ollie and I'm an undergraduate student at the University of Melbourne, majoring in Mathematics and Statistics. I'm interested in applying my studies in mathematics, computing, and biology to better interpret and model biological systems.
At the moment I work casually as a research assistant at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute in the Davidson Lab, with a primary focus on developing methodology for the demultiplexing of barcoded long-read sequencing data. I'm open and interested in learning more about bioinformatics and mathematical biology. Over the summer holidays, I will be undertaking a vacation research scholarship at the Infectious Disease Dynamics Unit at the University of Melbourne, looking at the application of mathematics in public health.
Last semester, I took Statistics, Stochastic Modelling, Principles of Human Structure, and Algorithms and Data Structures as a second year student. Previously, I took the graduate-level Computational Genomics subject through the Community Access Program.
I also tutor the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE). If you're here for that, please see my dedicated Tutoring page. You should have a read through some of the articles I've written!
