Faculty Profile

Dr. Aziz Mithani

Assistant Professor

Department Of Biology

Dr Aziz Mithani started as a computer scientist and received his Masters in Computer Sciences from FAST-NU, Karachi before going to University of Cambridge, UK where he did MPhil in Computational Biology. In summer 2006, he went to Harvard Medical School for a research internship in Paulsson Lab at Department of Systems Biology. Dr Mithani received his DPhil inStatistics (Computational Biology) from University of Oxford, UK in November 2009 under the supervision of Prof Jotun Hein and Dr Gail Preston. His dissertation focused on modelling the evolution and analysis of the properties of metabolic networks. Subsequently, Dr Mithani joined Harberd Lab at the Department of Plant Sciences, University of Oxford, UK as a postdoctoral research associate where he worked for two years on the evolution of bread wheat. 

His research interests include the application of computational and mathematical methods in the area of modern biology. Specifically, he 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.
