Biography

Vincent Moulton is Professor in Computational Biology at University of East Anglia. After completing his undergraduate studies at University of Warwick in 1987, he moved to the USA, where he completed an MSc at University of Washington in 1991, and his PhD at Duke University in 1994. He then worked as a researcher at University of Bielefeld, DE, and University of Canterbury/Massey University, NZ. In 1997 he moved to Sweden, where he was employed as Senior Lecturer at Mid Sweden University and, as of 2002, Professor in Bioinformatics at Uppsala University. He joined University of East Anglia in 2004.
