Sweden - Norway
Computational biologist. Interests: sequencing technologies, web development, and data management.
My primary interest lies in systems biology and multiomic data integration. I am particularly fascinated by the visualization techniques and the theory behind combining information of different scale, encoding and biological setting. Nordic Computational Biology provides a natural place for me and others to socialize, learn and develop together. The project is open for anyone with a burning interest in computational biology and related fields, a society that is actively non-exclusive which I find extremely valuable.

PhD researcher. Interests: molecular evolution, origin of life, phylogenetics, and drawing trees. I am excited about the fact that Nordic CompBio will be the voice of researchers in the field of bioinformatics and computational biology in Nordic countries. We aim to achieve diversity in science and to focus on the methodological way of presenting studies that will help science communication change more beneficially.

My group’s research focuses on developing computational frameworks that place genomic data into the context of gene regulatory networks and on exploring how these networks influence complex disease, with a main focus on cancer.
Thoughts on Nordic CompBio: Many of the tools and methodologies that computational biologists develop and use can be applied to or extended in a wide variety of settings and projects. Through connecting researchers from different career stages and across the Nordic countries, I hope that the NCB platform will spark creativity, increase collaborations, and create a more collective and open approach to doing research.
