My primary interests lie in the areas of data mining, machine learning, and related algorithms. I am especially interested in explorative data analysis, in being able to make analytic decisions with the help of large heterogenous data sources, and in introducing new methods and computational concept into other sciences and application areas. Computation is the new common language for sciences, just like mathematics. The technology has however been available only for a relatively short time. Many of the fundamental concepts and methods have therefore not been yet invented, which makes this an exciting field to work in.
