Research Focus

My lab tries to foster the understanding and diagnosis of severe blood diseases. To that end, we develop bespoke machine learning algorithms for the classification of single cells and patients. We also exploit the prior knowledge about haematopoiesis, the production of blood cells, to model time resolved data with mechanistic mathematical models. Merging the power of AI with our knowledge on biomedical systems is one of our current challenges.
