    Research interests

    My primary interest lies in the analysis of very cool biomedical data, as well as the development of mathematical- & computational methods that extent the scope of analysis from correlation to causation. While we usually work in inter-disciplinary teams, my intellectual contributions include AI and ML approaches, as well as modelling, simulation & optimization of stochastic systems.

    I am interested in applying this expertise to understand infectious disease spread and -control using antimicrobial drugs, as well as fundamental regulatory processes during development and infection. Application areas include pharmacometric (PK/PD) modelling of pre-exposure prophylaxis; evolutionary-, developmental and population dynamics, genotype-phenotype mapping, as well as transcriptomics.
