Welcome to my homepage. I am a Professor in Bioinformatics at the Computational Biology Unit and the Department of Informatics at the University of Bergen. My overall research interest is to develop and apply statistical and machine learning approaches to understand how genetic, epigenetic and gene expression variation cause variation in complex traits and diseases in human. If you are interested in joining my group, check for current vacancies, or send me an email.
Our paper “Restricted maximum-likelihood method for learning latent variance components in gene expression data with known and unknown confounders” has been published in G3. In this paper we analyse the mathematical structure of a class of statistical models for learning hidden factors influencing gene expression data and show that a new algorithm based on the …
Congratulations to Ammar, whose paper “High-dimensional multi-trait GWAS by reverse prediction of genotypes” has been accepted for presentation at CIBB 2021!
Congratulations to Ramin, whose paper “A graph feature auto-encoder for the prediction of unobserved node features on biological networks” has been published in BMC Bioinformatics!
