Centre for Translational Bioinformatics

Katriona Goldmann, MPhys, MSc


PhD Student

Centre: Centre for Translational Bioinformatics and the Centre for Experimental Medicine and Rheumatology



Katriona completed an undergraduate degree in Astrophysics at the University of Edinburgh in 2015. This was followed by a masters degree in Biomedical Engineering at the Strathclyde University. She joined the William Harvey Research Institute in 2017 as a Junior Bioinformatician working collaboratively between the Centre for Experimental Medicine and Rheumatology and the Centre for Translational Bioinformatics.

In 2018 Katriona started her PhD exploring multi-omic data integration in autoimmune diseases. She combines data from multiple biological sources including the genome, transcriptome and proteome to try and identify drivers of disease and move towards personalised or stratified medicine. She also focuses on creating interactive computational tools to analyse big biological data online using Shiny, R, and Plotly.
