Ben Bai (New Zealand)

I grew up in the City of Sails: Auckland, New Zealand. Before joining the Anderson team, I worked on a variety of bioinformatics projects, including methods development, honey bee behaviour, malaria vaccines and bacterial evolution. My PhD focuses on using omics datasets generated from longitudinal blood samples taken from patients to study vaccine response (e.g. H1N1, rotavirus). My broad interests include the integration of multi-omics datasets, contributing to a systems-level understanding of the architecture of complex and infectious disease. I also enjoy watching anime, browsing charity bookshops, and playing badminton. You can find me at and Sanger Institute.
