Research Interests

I am mainly interested in:

  • Network models to predict drug sensitivity in cancer
  • Computational drug re-positioning
  • Calibration of high-troughput data on Gene-regulatory and Protein-Protein-interaction networks to infer primary causes of transcriptional changes
  • Network randomisation, rewiring and null model simulations  


My Erdös Number is 3
