A belated but nevertheless very warm welcome to Adriaan and Wouter who joined the group in October!
Adriaan is a postdoc with master and PhD degrees in physics who most recently worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the neurophysics group of Jordi Soriani in Barcelona. His focus there was on network inference methods for neuronal activity data, and he will use that experience to further develop our causal gene network inference methods for applications in systems genetics.
Wouter is a master student in bioinformatics and systems biology in Amsterdam who is joining the group for a 6-month internship. He will work on a method for inferring data-driven gene ontologies from gene expression data.
A warm welcome to Ramin Hasibi who has joined the group as a PhD student. Ramin has a master degree in computer networks and a strong background in deep learning and machine learning more generally. Welcome!
A warm welcome to Ammar Malik who has joined the group as a PhD student. Ammar has a degree in Computer Engineering and brings with him a lot of experience in machine learning. Welcome!
Congratulations and goodbye to Lingfei who has joined Ramnik Xavier’s lab at the Broad Institute and Massachusetts General Hospital. Thanks for the good times and all the hard work, and all the best in your new position!
A warm welcome to Sean who has joined the group as a PhD student in the Precision Medicine Doctoral Training Programme. Sean will work on a project to identify and study tissue-specific gene networks affected by genetic variation for plasma cortisol and causally associated with cardiovascular disease phenotypes and type II diabetes, in collaboration with Filippo Menolascina and Brian Walker.
Husain has successfully defended his PhD thesis “Cross-tissue regulatory gene networks in coronary atherosclerosis” at Karolinska Institute. Congratulations and good luck in your future career!
A warm welcome to Pau Erola who joins us as a postdoctoral Research Fellow, having completed a PhD in Computer Engineering from the Universitat Rovira i Virgili and an MSc in Biomedicine from the Universitat de Barcelona.
Hassan has successfully defended his PhD thesis
“eQTL mapping and inherited risk enrichment analysis : a systems biology approach for coronary artery disease” at Karolinska Institute. Congratulations and good luck in your new postdoc career!
A warm welcome to Lingfei Wang who joins us from a PhD in Theoretical Physics at Lancaster University to work on a BBSRC funded project to develop a method for reconstructing causal Bayesian gene networks from large-scale omics data.
A warm welcome to Robert Ball who joins the group as a PhD student on an EASTBIO funded project to study host-parasite interactions in trypanosome infections, in collaboration with Liam Morrison.
