I am a postdoctoral researcher and docent (adjunct professor, Aalto University). I work primarily at University of Sheffield, Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience, with Prof. Magnus Rattray and Prof. Neil Lawrence. I also work partly in Aalto University where I am a member of the Statistical Machine Learning and Bioinformatics research group. I am a member of the Adaptive Informatics Research Centre, Helsinki Institute for Information Technology HIIT, and the PASCAL2 Network of Excellence. My research interests include probabilistic generative and information-theoretic methods and formalisms such as learning metrics, especially for application in visualization, clustering, and bioinformatics.
