We work on machine learning and deep learning methods, with a focus on biomedical applications. Our activities include the development of statistical models for prediction, feature selection, clustering, network inference, but also image segmentation and causality mining. Currently we have research projects on identifying soil degradation in the Swiss Alps, modelling bird migration, and discovering novel molecules with desirable properties. In previous research projects we worked on EEG analysis in the context of Parkinson dementia, on DNA sequence analysis for HIV therapy optimization, on copula distributions and on causal models.
