Dr. Jack Morrice (Postdoctoral Fellow)

Dr. Morrice is managing the development of data analysis pipelines and training material for big data epidemiology. Pipelines to include GWAS studies, whole genome sequence variant calling, cleaning and summarizing epidemiology registry data, and more. The pipelines will be augmented by extensive online documentation and training materials. Previously a researcher in mathematical astronomy, Jack has moved to the field of bioinformatics and human genetics where they are currently developing modern, ready-to-use, and portable data analysis pipelines for a range of study types in big data epidemiology. Jack obtained his PhD in applied mathematics from the University of Sheffield in the UK before coming to Cape Town, South Africa, where they now live.
