Christopher Heje Grønbech

Enrolled PhD student

I am PhD student employed by the bioinformatics software company Qlucore in Lund, Sweden, enrolled at University of Copenhagen, and funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network “Machine Learning Frontiers in Precision Medicine”.

I develop deep-learning methods to model and visualise biomedical data, in particular single-cell RNA-sequencing gene expression data, to improve the interpretability of the data.

These methods are deep generative methods, in particular variational auto-encoders (VAEs), and I have worked with Gaussian-mixture VAEs, conditional VAEs, hierarchical VAEs, and mixtures of these.
