Entrust Your Future Health To Us
As a child, Joseph always questioned the workings of life around him, troubled by questions of how life works and how we can treat diseases. Joseph has always envisioned himself being able to one day solve the mysteries of life and finding ways to help improve it. This encouraged Joseph to pursue a degree in Human Biology, with a strong focus on genetics, endocrinology, and anatomy and physiology. Joseph later studied for a Masters degree in Applied Bioinformatics, so that he could apply the power of computing to understand the vastly complicated mechanisms by which life, both Human and non-Human life, works.
Joseph currently works full time as the Lead Bioinformatics Engineer at Zess, where the focus is to help people make smarter food choices. He is also a Visiting Researcher at the University of Manchester in the School of Biological Sciences within the The Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health. At Zess, Joseph helps with scientific innovation, creates software, and conducts research which aims to make a large positive social and health impact on peoples lives. In this role, he work closely with expert academics and industry leaders across the world. His work entails the heavy use of computer science, bioinformatics, statistics, immunology, and medical science. He is an elected member of the Royal Society of Biology.
Prior to this, Joseph worked as a Research Scientist and bioinformatics engineer at Rothamsted Research, within the world of academia. There his work focused on developing software, applications, and tools to better understand the molecular underpinnings of pathogen and host interactions. At Rothamsted, Joseph also created a COVID-19 knowledge graph to help researchers navigate the sea of Coronavirus information & make meaningful discoveries – his work was featured in Nature and cited elsewhere. He also worked within the COVID-19 international research team, alongside NASA, NIH, UC-Berkeley and many other. Josephs experience isn’t just limited to computational biology; he previously worked as a research assistant within the laboratory and clinic, alongside medical Doctors and Academics. During this role, his research focused on identifying ways to combat inflammatory diseases, with a focus on molecular genetics, epigenetics, and physiology.
Joseph’s fascination with the workings of life has continued throughout his career, even now as he integrates his human and non-Human biology knowledge alongside his software skills and strong ability to critically appraise scientific literature, enabling him to develop and engineer software tools for the world of biological, agrifood, and medical sciences.
Continuing with his passion for understanding the human body and trying to make a difference to the lives around him, Joseph is excited to be helping out the team at The Men’s Health Clinic.
In his spare time, Joseph will be helping out by writing on various medical topics for clinicians, academics, and the general public to read, understand, and ponder on. He will also be helping us conduct clinical studies to help progress Men’s health in the UK.
When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied. – Herophilus
My goal is to help improve the lives of all. Improving health is undoubtedly one way to achieve this and it starts with helping explain the workings behind a persons health and how we can improve it.
