Robin Allaby's Problem Solving Experience:

  1. I have developed techniques to recover ancient DNA from charred archaeological remains; used agent based modeling to explain population genetics and selection processes; applied ancient DNA techniques to 'ecological forensics' developed a spin out business identifying animal species from scat; am at the forefront of sequencing the first archaeological plant genomes; have developed pattern matching algorithms for patent issues in the pharmaceutical industry (saving 10,000's in license costs); developed algorithms for environmental DNA analysis (recent Science paper)
