I am a final-year PhD student in the Computational Biology department in School of Computer Science and Communication at Royal Institute of Technology. My Ph.D. advisor is Jens Lagergren and I work in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics group.
My primary research interests include:
- Bayesian methods in phylogenetics
- Markov chain monte carlo (MCMC) methods for high dimensional problems
- High performance computing
- Probabilistic clustering/Mixture models
I have also worked a bit in Text Mining in Masters where we devised a hybrid generative discriminative classification algorithm for text categorization, using support vector machine (SVM) and kernel methods.
