Clara Eléonore Pavillet
BSc (Hons), MSc
I am an interdisciplinary DPhil student from the Medical Sciences Doctoral Training Centre (MSDTC) with Prof. Francesca Buffa and Prof. Tudor Fulga, specialising in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. I am fully-funded by the University of Oxford and the Wellcome Trust Scholarship.
I grew up in Europe, South America and North America, making me fluent in French, Spanish and English.
After graduating from the University of Toronto I pursued graduate studies at the University of Oxford where I further combined my interest in medicine, computer science, and physics in a master's thesis supervised by Prof. Francesca Buffa.
Thereafter, in the first year of my DPhil, I moved on to machine learning and image analysis during my time with Prof. Ilan Davis at the Department of Biochemistry in collaboration with Prof. Ruth Baker from the Mathematical Institute, and Prof. Andrew Zisserman from the Oxford Robotics Institute (see more). I then worked on Oxford Nanopore Technologies sequence modelling with Dr. Michael Boemo (see more) before joining the MRC WIMM Centre for Computational Biology to focus on computational and statistical genetics for my third DPhil rotation (see more).
