“Changing our perspective helps us see the world in a whole new light. Solving the upcoming challenges in the life sciences thus requires machine learning algorithms that are aware of multiple scales in the data.”

Research Areas

Our world is full of phenomena that occur at multiple scales. Biomedical research, for instance, commonly observes complex systems at different resolutions, ranging from the macroscopic to the microscopic. With noise being an inevitable part of such investigations, we need tools that enable robust multi-scale analyses. My research agenda is to create, cultivate, and critique such tools based on topological machine learning techniques, with a specific focus on healthcare topics.
