Statistical machine learning
Probabilistic graphical models
Network structure learning
Computational causal inference
I completed my PhD in statistics during 2012-2016 at Åbo Akademi University, Finland. I worked on developing a new class of probabilistic graphical models, along with algorithms for learning the structure of the models from data.
During 2016-2019, I worked as a postdoc at University of Helsinki, Finland, developing and applying data analysis tools for applications in statistical genomics. In particular, the main project involved detection of co-evolutionary signals from bacterial population sequence data using ultra-high-dimensional structure learning.
Since February 2020, I am an Associate Professor in Statistics and Data Science at the Department of Mathematics, University of Oslo. At a general level, my research interests are focused around developing and applying statistical and machine learning methods for real-world applications.
