Research Interests

My current research is focusing on three topics:

  1. genome-wide inference of gene regulatory networks from large-scale gene expression data
  2. finding interesting genes in single-cell transcriptome data (see singleCellHaystack)
  3. analysis of stimulus-induced changes in epigenetic markers and their effect on transcription
In addition, I have been involved in several interdisciplinary collaborations, especially involving the field of immunology.
