Dr Nadia Chuzhanova is a Professor of Biomedical Mathematics. She is involved in teaching Statistics 2 and Practical Techniques for Biology at undergraduate level and Research Methods and Computational Statistics and Data Analysis modules at postgraduate level. She also supervises PhD students and the final year projects in Statistics/Mathematics and Bioinformatics.
Nadia was a reader in Bioinformatics and a Head of Bioinformatics, Biophysics and Self-Organising Systems cluster at The University of Central Lancashire, Preston (2006-2010) and was also a research Fellow, Lecturer, Head of Bioinformatics at Cardiff University (1998-2006).
Areas of research interest include Bioinformatics of mutagenesis with the aim of developing novel mathematical, statistical and computational methods and algorithms for identification of specific DNA sequence features, epigenetic factors and other architectural features that mediate and drive mutagenesis both in pathology and evolution.
Professor Chuzhanova is particularly interested in developing approaches for predicting remotely acting regulatory elements and in understanding their role in disease developments and progression.
