Personal profile

Brief presentation

I am a data scientist working as researcher at Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen at the academic level of Assistant Professor. My work is focused on the integration and analysis of molecular profiles of persons with diabetes. My particular focus is on blood metabolomics for clinical diabetes research.

Current research

Metabolomics data integration and statistical learning for diabetes in relation to:

  • development and prevention (the INNODIA and DEXLIFE projects)
  • treatment (the CIMT study)
  • complications (the PROFIL study and the PROTON project)
  • co-morbidities (the GALAXY project)
  • personalized medicine (the RHAPSODY and POPS projects).

Bioinformatics & machine learning methods development for:

  • targeted metabolomics analyses for precision medicine in the clinical setting (the PROTON, RHAPSODY, POPS, etc., projects)
  • non-targeted multi-platform metabolomics analyses.

I am the creator of the R-package lipidomeR for multivariate visualization of the lipidome (see demos at lipidomeR.org).

Education and academic degrees

I hold a degree of Doctor of Science (Technology) in the field of Information and Computer Science from Aalto University and Helsinki Institute for Information Technology.
