Dr Sisu joined Brunel University as Lecturer in Genomic Data Analytics in April 2017. Prior to that, she studied Chemical Engineering first at University “Politehnica” Bucharest and then at University “Politehnica” Timisoara in Romania, followed by an MSc in Molecular Sciences at Wagennigen University, The Netherlands and a PhD in Bioinformatics at University of Cambridge. Next, she moved to USA as a post-doc at Yale University in the lab of Mark Gerstein.
Dr Sisu’s current research focuses on the study of pseudogenes from both an evolutionary perspective but also as key players in various disease.
Dr Sisu is also the chair of the Early Career Lectures in Bioscience at HUBS (Royal Society of Biology).
