Portrait of Colin Gravill

Colin Gravill

Senior Research Software Development Engineer


I’m a software developer working in the Biological Computation group at Microsoft Research, Cambridge. I have a background in industrial automation and building analytical devices in materials, pharmaceuticals, and aerospace industries. I’m applying this to building reproducible and effective systems in our wet lab to validate our biological designs. I also assist in the optimisation of our computational methods to run far more efficiently and then conveniently scaling over hundreds of machines on Azure.
