Research description

My current research focuses on development and applications of statistical and computational methods for cancer genomics data. I closely collaborate with Professor Yudi Pawitan to develop various bioinformatics software for analysing sequencing data in Biostat Wiki. Most of the tools are developed and in R, Rshiny and C/C++.

Research areas

- Development of methods to detect non-coding RNAs including gene fusion and circular RNAs from RNA sequencing data

- Models to discover driver alterations in cancer

- Models to predict drug responses of tumours

- Methods to analyse single-cell sequencing data

Research grants

My research is supported by the Swedish Research Council (as PI), Karolinska Institutet (as PI) and the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF).
