Research focus

My research focuses on predicting clinically relevant protein-protein interactions in cancer by applying machine learning methods. By combining mutation information and other interesting features we aim to predict relevant (disturbed) protein-protein interactions in specific cancers and pan-cancer. These predictions can be experimentally validated by techniques such as deep mutational scanning, who currently depend on known interactions.
