Dr Neil Caithness is a Senior Researcher in the OeRC.
Neil has a research background in zoology, and for the past 10 years has been involved in various e-Science activities and projects, particularly regarding the integration of computational services for the biological sciences. He is currently Co-I and Work Package leader for the ViBRANT project led by the Natural History Museum, London, and funded under the European Commission’s FP7. His work on this project aims to deliver external computational services (e.g. phylogenetic inference and biodiversity modelling) to the Scratchpads platform for taxonomy research. In addition to these projects, Neil has built a strong collaboration with the Oxford Biodiversity Institute (led by Prof. Kathy Willis) where he is also an Associate Researcher. A project to automate the computational analysis for ecological valuation is the first output of this collaboration (LEFT – Local Ecological Footprint Tool.)
