Welcome Sam Jobbins!


We wish a warm welcome to Dr. Sam Jobbins, who has recently joined us as a Lecturer of Data Science and Mathematics.

Sam completed his PhD in Chemistry at Cardiff University in 2018. His research was in the area of Computational Materials Science, applying advanced statistical and modelling techniques to investigate the structure, properties and behaviour of existing and novel materials.

After this Sam became interested in Bioinformatics and joined the MRC Centre for Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Genomics (also in Cardiff). Funded by industry, Sam combined tools from data analysis, network analysis, machine learning and molecular modelling to investigate the deep, underlying genetics underpinning schizophrenia and related disorders.
