Ph. d. student in Applied Mathematical Physics
ITN, Linköpings universitet
I work as a Ph. D. student at the Department of Science and Technology (ITN), Linköping University/ Campus Norrköping, Sweden with Michael Hörnquist and Jesper Tegner as supervisors. My main research interest regards computational systems biology.
thesis in theoretical physics at Linköping University is titled "Coherent waves
in DNA within the Peyrard-Bishop model" and is about mobility of
nonlinear coherent waves in a heterogenous extension to the Peyrard-Bishop
model of DNA dynamics.
I have also done a master thesis in mathematics at the mathematics departement at the Stockholm University, which is about game theory with the particular example of simplified poker problems. It is mainly written in swedish (apart from an abstract) and is called "Spelteori: En studie av hur pokerproblemet delvis lösts".
My main project has been focused on genetic networks. The primary goal has been to see what can be learned from inferred linear genetic networks on a genomic-scale, i.e., assuming a linear relationship between the gene activity and gene expression levels. The project has resulted in one accepted paper in IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics together with Michael Hörnquist and Anna Lombardi.
We also have one paper in manuscript together with Jesper Tegner, and some posters presented as some conferences (ICSB 2003, Reglermöte 2004, Bioinformatics 2004 and Complex Systems 2004, and DIMACS 2005). Another ongoing project is to study topological properties of existing networks. In a project (in manuscript) together with MH and AL we investigate some properties of communities (dense subgraphs). Another key interest is to investigate whether communities in biological networks are linked to functional modules, i.e., robust gene sets that fulfil a specific function.
