My research

My major interest is in developing computational tools & resources to facilitate and speed up biological and medical discoveries using bioinformatic systems combined with data modeling and AI/machine learning. Emphasis is on the inference of new information not explicitly present in biological data, development of systems with such capabilities using AI/machine learning models, and their industrial applications.

Related to this I engage as necessary in problems of information integration; automated knowledge-, text- and data-mining; use of AI/machine learning in biomedicine; development of bioinformatics tools & resources; biomarkers (screening, diagnosis, prognosis); drug repositioning; systems biology; metagenomics.

Current focus:

  • AI & medical/health informatics;
  • Biomedical knowledge-, text- & data-mining;
  • AI/machine learning modeling;
  • Drug repositioning;
  • Diagnostic, screening & prognostic biomarkers;
  • Information integration.  

 Other interests:

  • Function inference of ncRNA and coding transcripts;
  • Metagenomics;
  • Gene regulation.
