Team presentation

The BIGS (Biology, Genetics and Statistics) team is focused on various aspects of Probability and Statistics, with applications in Biology, Genetics and Medicine in mind. Specifically, we try to tackle several issues in high dimensional data analysis, and study some probabilistic models (noisy equations, Markov chains, MCMC algorithms) closely related to relevant situations in life sciences. Our applications to real world problem include photodynamic therapies, data analysis for longitudinal studies in medicine, fetal biometry or bacteriophage systems.

Research themes

Online data analysis, local regression, estimation for complex biological systems, Markovian models for tumor growth, SDEs for bacteriophage systems, MCMC methods for light transport in tissues.

International and industrial relations

Collaboration with Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (bacteriophage systems) and Harvard (estimation for complex biological systems).
