Analyst at DNAlytics
I work as an analyst at DNAlytics, a very dynamic Belgian company that covers the whole development of data-driven personalised medicine solutions, from R&D to market access. My background is in Machine Learning and data analysis.
I received a PhD in June 2015. The goal of my thesis is to improve the interpretability of predictive models built on very high dimensional data. It particularly focuses on heterogeneous biomedical data that contain different types of variables. Selecting a few variables that allow us to predict some clinical outcome greatly helps medical doctors to understand the studied biological process better.

- jForest is a generic implementation of tree ensemble methods. It is designed to be very modular and enables easy tuning of the tree induction process, classification criterion and feature importance index. It is developed in Java and bundled in the form of a R package. jForest implements our statistically interpretable feature importance index (see publications).
