Personal profile


Jonathan works in the School of Mathematical Sciences at Monash University as a Senior Lecturer

Jonathan is a researcher in Bayesian methods, bioinformatics and genetic epidemiology. His current main research interest is in statistical methods for the detection of novel non-protein-coding functional elements in genomes. He also has current and recent projects in phylogenetics, whole genome association studies and identification of quantitative trait loci.

He is currently a chief investigator on two ARC Discovery grants: Statistical methods for detection of non-coding RNAs in Eukaryote Genomes and Statistical methods for discovering RNAs contributing to human diseases and phenotypes.
