About me

I am a doctoral student at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg, with my advisor Rebecka Jörnsten.

My research addresses aspects of unsupervised exploratory analysis for biomedical data. Most of the data considered in my PhD project comes from the domain of braincancer research. The methodological focus of my work has been on

  • Integrated analysis of multiple data sources through joint matrix factorisation, with emphasis on flexibility, scalability, and interpretability.
  • Integrated gene clustering and regulatory program estimation.

Previously, I worked with dynamical models of pharmacological process and parameter estimation in both frequentist and Bayesian settings.




I was responsible for the lectures and course coordination for

and did a lot of teaching assistance (e.g. holding exercise classes, correcting submissions) over the years since 2011. Examples of subjects I was involved in are

Mathematical Statistics, Probability Theory, Linear Algebra, and Calculus.

I supervised the following students during their master thesis projects
