David Kreil

David joined Life Sciences as Full Professor in 2012.


I run a bioinformatics research lab in Vienna, where we are interested in the study of complex systems in living organisms. Novel views augmenting the classical gene by gene approaches are required to overcome the engineered redundancies and combinatorial effects prevalent in higher eukaryotes. To this end, very high-dimensional data sets are being collected, and computational methods play a key role in the quest for extracting insight. On one hand, we are interested in technical / organizational challenges, like efficient light-weight dynamic workflow systems for ensuring data provenance and constraint enforcement. On the other hand, we are interested in principled ways of dealing with the different levels of uncertainty inherent in the exploitation of heterogeneous data sources (Bayesian inference, data fusion).

I am a new arrival at Warwick, so if you are interested in collaborating I would love to hear from you.
