Jola is a Senior Computational Scientist working at the overlap of Scientific Machine Learning (SciML) and CCP-EM research groups. Her research focuses on applying​ machine learning and computer vision solutions to improve understanding of multi-dimensional and visual data in structural biology, in particular within electron cryo-microscopy (cryo-EM). Jola completed her undergraduate degree in AI and Robotics at Aberystwyth University and obtained her doctoral degree from the University of Oxford. Her DPhil thesis focused on using machine learning to understand the functional basis of cancerous tumours during their longitudinal development. In her spare time, she enjoys rock climbing and alpinism.​
