Rowan Barker-Clarke

HiI am a postdoctoral research scientist at Cleveland Clinic Lerner Institute. I work with Jacob Scott, MD, DPhil in his group; Theory Division. My interests lie in cancer informatics, digital medicine, and novel biomarkers of cancer evolution.

About Me.

I studied physics at the University of Oxford, Hertford College from 2011 to 2015. My passion for research led me to the University of Cambridge, where I dedicated myself to earning my PhD between 2015 and 2020. During this time, I had the privilege of spending a year as part of the Wellcome Trust Mathematical Genomics and Medicine program, broadening my horizons in mathematical genomics.

My doctoral work was supervised by Prof. James Brenton, MD at the CRUK-Cambridge Institute. In 2021, I moved to the United States to undertake my postdoctoral studies at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Institute. Under the mentorship of Jacob Scott, I am currently studying topology and dynamics of wearable sensor data during clinical cancer evolution.

Looking ahead, my career aspirations are independent group leadership in the areas of digital health and oncology.
