Dr. Matthew Pocock


My primary role is supporting Anil Wipat and Jen Hallinan‘s engagement with synthetic biology data standards. I am an editor for the SBOL standard for data exchange in synthetic biology, and actively contribute both to the development of this standard and to the software libraries that implement it.

Synthetic biology provides an exciting application area for bringing together a wide range of computing techniques, biological knowledge and laboratory techniques. Having a background in software design and data integration, I’m excited by the potential to make a significant impact within this domain.
