Assistant Professor, Ph.D.
University College London, 2005: Computational Biology;
Tom MacCarthy’s research uses computational modeling to study fundamental biological questions in both immunology and evolutionary biology. In Computational Immunology he uses computational and statistical methods to better understand the mechanisms underlying the generation of antibody diversity in response to infection and disease. In Evolutionary Systems Biology he uses modeling to study the evolution of gene regulatory networks with the aim of revealing the forces driving changes in developmental networks and the causes underlying the evolution of robustness, or tolerance to failure, in these networks.
