Dr. Aziz Mithani
Assistant Professor, Biology, LUMS
Dr. Aziz Mithani is interested in the development of computational tools and techniques to model and analyse biological systems, and to investigate how different organisms evolve over time. His prior work focused on modelling the evolution and analysis of the properties of metabolic networks and on the evolution of bread wheat.
He received his Masters in Computer Sciences from FAST-NU, Karachi, MPhil in Computational Biology from University of Cambridge, DPhil in Statistics (Computational Biology) from University of Oxford in November 2009. He also completed a research internship at Paulsson Lab at Department of Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School, and held a postdoctoral research position at Harberd Lab at the Department of Plant Sciences, University of Oxford.
