Biografi

PhD in Bioinformatics from Uppsala University, 2009. Postdoctoral fellowships at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm and Finnish Institute of Molecular Medicine (FIMM), Helsinki. Was co-director at the UPPMAX high performance computing center at Uppsala University (2010-2017), and headed the Bioinformatics Compute and Storage facility at Science for Life Laboratory in Sweden (2010-2017). Currently employed as Senior Lecturer at Department of Pharmaceutical Biosciences leading the research group in pharmaceutical bioinformatics.

Forskning

High-throughput technologies have transformed biomedicine into a data-intensive discipline. This has shifted the focus from traditional data generation and hypothesis testing to more data-driven research, and bioinformatics data analysis has become the bottleneck in many projects. However, the field is characterized by growing data sets and poorly scalable software, threatening to severely constrain many biomedical projects. Our group aims at developing new methods and applications to meet the demands of high-throughput biology and drug discovery, using high-throughput and cloud-based e-infrastructures and Big Data analytics.
