Ata Amini, PhD, is a postdoctoral Research Associate in Imperial College London, working in the Structural Bioinformatics Group under supervision of Professor Michael Sternberg and Computational Bioinformatics Laboratory under supervision of Professor Stephen Muggleton, since July 2003. His main research is the qualitative and quantitative toxicology and activity prediction of small molecules including drugs using modern methods such as machine learning methods. He has a broad range of interets in the development of new computational techniques that makes prediction of more effective and less toxic drugs possible. He is also interested in the metabolism of drugs, medical image processing and scientific software programming. Before coming to Imperial he did his PhD about simulation of electron transfer in various small and macromolecules in the molecular photonics laboratory under supervision of Professor Anthony Harriman in the University of Newcastle.
