Clara Pavillet

BSc (Hons), MSc (Oxon)


DPhil Student

I am a DPhil student from the Medical Sciences Doctoral Training Centre and MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine with Prof. Francesca Buffa (Computational Biology and Integrative Genomics) and Prof. Tudor Fulga (Genome Engineering and Synthetic Biology). I am a member of Keble College, and I am fully-funded by the University of Oxford and the Wellcome Trust.

For my DPhil, I am investigating T cell-mediated immune responses using large-scale genomics data to develop mathematical, statistical and computational models for drug target discovery and immunotherapy. In my first year, I undertook three rotation projects at the Department of Biochemistry1, Sir William Dunn School of Pathology2 and MRC WIMM Centre for Computational Biology3:

  • Single-Molecule Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization Image Analysis of RNA Transcripts Involved in Brain Development1 (see more)
  • Predicting Oxford Nanopore Base-Calling Errors to Improve the Performance of a Hidden Markov Model Identifying DNA Base Analogues2 (see more)
  • Deep Learning Model to Predict tRNA Promoter and Processing Activities for gRNA Expression used in CRISPR Genome Editing3 (see more)
