Javier Pardo Díaz

Vicepresident of SRUK/CERU

Involvement in SRUK/CERU

I studied Biotechnology at the Technical University of Madrid (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid – UPM), specialising in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. At the moment, I am studying a doctorate in Statistics at the University of Oxford. My thesis focuses on the design of bioinformatics tools for the study of the changes in the gene expression of Rhizobium leguminosarum. Specifically, I am interested in the generation and study of gene coexpression networks. From a more general perspective, I have been involved in the management of the MCR (Middle Common Room) of Keble College (University of Oxford), becoming President during the academic year 2018/19. I belong to the working group of the Oxford constituency of CERU, being also its Press and Online delegate. In addition, I am involved in the CERU Scientific Policy Department. My interests are quite diverse and include research, bioinformatics, science communication, management and politics.
