Dr. Torbjörn Nordling obtained both his Ph.D. in Automatic Control (2013) and his M.Sc. in Engineering Physics (2005) from KTH Royal Institute of Technologyin Stockholm, Sweden. He has specialised in Mathematical Modelling, System Identification, and Machine Learning with applications in Biology and Medicine. He has developed both new theory and methodology, most notably, for Robust Network Inference and Variable Selection.
He is currently an Assistant Professor at the Dept. of Mechanical Engineering at the National Cheng Kung University in Tainan, Taiwan. He is also associated with Stockholm Bioinformatics Center at the Science for Life Laboratory in Sweden. Previously he has done a PostDoc at the Dept. of Immunology, Genetics and Pathology at Uppsala University in Sweden. He has been a visiting researcher at Telethon Institute of Genetics and Medicine in Naples, Italy and ERATO Kitano Symbiotic Systems Project at Japan Science and Technology Agency in Tokyo, Japan. He is the founder of Nordron AB, a startup specialised in data analysis, and a co-founder of Jagah Systems AB, an award winning indoor geolocalisation startup.
He has co-authored more than 10 peer-reviewed journal articles, more than 20 full-length conference articles, and given numerous oral and poster presentations. His research is currently focused on Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Network Inference, Feature Selection, and Biomarker Discovery. In particular, he is investigating how children learn in order to be able to create more data efficient learning strategies for training artificial neural networks.
