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.
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!
Congrats to Ramin for posting no less than two preprints on arXiv: Tesla-Rapture: A Lightweight Gesture Recognition System from mmWave Radar Point Clouds Integrating Sensing and Communication in Cellular Networks via NR Sidelink Both papers result from a collaboration between Ramin and Dariush Salami at the Ambient Intelligence group at Aalto University, and introduce new …
