This website describes some of my work and is a repository to make software available from past projects.
My name is Richard Evans. I am a self-taught programmer with over 10 years of experience of programming in scientific projects, using
Projects have included
- Visual Basic.net
- Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) in Microsoft Access and Excel
- Data science and analysis (bioinformatics, neuroscience/electrophysiology data)
- Software development for analysis of published scientific literature and experimental data
- Development of databases for toxicology
My research interests include the toxicology of chemical mixtures, computational toxicology, endocrine disruption, and neurological diseases including multiple sclerosis (MS) and motor neuron disease (MND or ALS - Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis or Lou Gehrig's Disease).
I have a PhD in neuroscience (King's College, London; 2004) and a BSc in Pharmacology and Toxicology (2000, School of Pharmacy, London, now UCL). I am a member of the British Computer Society (MBCS), the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP) and the British Toxicology Society (BTS); and I am an Associate of King's College London (AKC).
I am interested in teaching opportunities in Pharmacology, Toxicology, Data Analysis and Computing (particularly Scientific Computing/PRogramming); and I run an after-school codeclub, teaching programming to primary school children. I also support Code Club Pro, which delivers training to school teachers on teaching programming. I can be contacted by email.
I maintain blogs on
Mixture toxicology - the science of understanding, predicting and managing toxic effects when people or the environment are exposed to multiple chemicals
Systems toxicology - the emerging use of systems biology tools and modelling in toxicology
- software to facilitate use of the BBB locomotor scale in experimental spinal cord research
- a database of mixture toxicology literature and associated chemical, regulatory information
