Biographical details

Dr Ellis Patrick is a computational biologist and applied statistician. He is currently an Early Career Development Fellow in the School of Mathematics and Statistics and a staff member at The Westmead Institute for Medical Research. He obtained his PhD in statistical bioinformatics in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Sydney. In his postdoctoral studies, he worked as a computational biologist with joint appointments at Brigham and Women's hospital, Harvard Medical School and The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. He spent this time using his statistical background to investigate the molecular drivers of Alzheimer's disease and MS. As he spends most of his time analysing large biomedical datasets, his research relies on the subtlety of translating between biological and statistical concepts to form simple, suitable and targeted statistical questions.
