Welcome Jiseub

“Jiseub Yun was born in Seoul, South Korea. He is a master student of physics at the LMU. Jiseub’s research focuses on the optimization of machine-learning workflows and adaptation of data analysis methods for the production of durable classification models. Such predictive models can make suitable medical tests for the detection of cancer, based on infrared molecular fingerprints (IMF) of human blood.”

Welcome Lea

“Lea Gigou comes from Munich and is a master student of physics at the LMU. Lea’s work focuses on topics related to phase-III research for the development of a medical test based on infrared molecular fingerprints (IMF) of human blood. One of her main goals is to mathematically model covariate effects and factors affecting test accuracy on the proposed medical tests, based on receiver-operating-characteristic (ROC) analysis.”

Tarek stays with us for his PhD

“Tarek Eissa received his BSc from the American University in Cairo (AUC) and his MSc degree in Informatics from the Technical University of Munich (TUM). He performed his MSc thesis within the BIRD group already. Now, teaming up with Prof. Burkhard Rost (TUM) in mentorship, we are glad to announce that Tarek decided to extend his collaboration with us and stay over for his PhD thesis. He is focusing on investigating the potential and limitations of infrared molecular fingerprinting (IMF) using in silico simulations. In addition, Tarek investigates potential applications of IMF on human phenotyping and characterizing the longitudinal trajectories of blood-based IMF by mining larger spectral and medical data sets from populational studies.”
