Dr. Jan Czarnecki

Web Developer

I develop Signal with Scott Shooter. While we’re both involved in all aspects of Signal, I focus more on the backend server architecture of the website.

I obtained my undergraduate in molecular and cellular biology from the University of Bath in 2008 and then a PhD in computational biology from Birkbeck, University of London in 2015. After working in academic services, and getting a taste for web development, at the Institute of Cancer Research for a couple of years, I joined the team in 2017.
