Rosa Karlić

Postdoctoral fellow working on several projects which try to relate chromatin structure and other epigenetic mechanisms to transcriptional regulation, evolution of regulatory elements and the development of complex diseases, especially cancer. Interested in the application of statistical and machine learning methods for the analysis of high-throughput genomic data.Involved in teaching two graduate-level courses: Statistics and machine learning and Computational genomics.
