Inga (PhD) is Professor in e-One Health. Her research interests span over statistical and computational method development and application to large-scale omics data to understand human disorders, such as type 2 diabetes, its related endophenotypes, and co-morbid conditions including cancer, depression and cardiovascular disease. Inga has long-standing experience in leading efforts within large-scale international collaborations, including the MAGIC and DIAGRAM consortia, as well as the EU-funded ENGAGE and DynaHEALTH projects.
