Title: Department of mechanical engineering startup grant


The purpose of my research is to produce biological knowledge useful for Cancer therapy based on modelling and analysis of quantitative biological data. My approach is based on application, adaption, and extension of System identification and Machine learning methods, and Control theory. I develop new identification theory and methods, analyse and modify existing methods, analyse data, and design wet lab experiments. Like the best groups in the world I in the long run want to combine wet lab experiments with theoretical work. My research is focused on the following applications:

  • Biomarker discovery
  • Inference of gene regulatory networks
