Olga has a background in technical physics and biomedical engineering with a PhD in bioinformatics from University of Birmingham, UK. She is interested in applying bioinformatics and biostatistical methods to omics data for addressing clinical and biological questions.

Olga has worked on a series of projects at the intersection of bioinformatics and statistics, both within translational and methods development research. During her PhD studies, she worked with mass-spectrometry based metabolomics data to optimize handling of missing data as well as to improve the outcomes of liver transplantation. As a medical statistician at the University of Oxford, she was involved in the methodological studies in radiology. During her post-doctoral experience at Karolinska Institutet, she was investigating gene expression and regulation of insulin resistance as well as developing novel bioinformatics methods to identify novel driver genes in lung cancer.

At NBIS Olga provides bioinformatics support for next generation sequencing projects, with a main focus on RNA-seq transcritpomics data.
