About

Mattias Rantalainen

I currently hold an Assistant Professorship at Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden.  Prior to my current position I was a research fellow (2009-2013) with a joint affiliation at the Department of Statistics (University of Oxford) and at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics (University of Oxford) where I worked with Professor Chris Holmes and Dr. Cecilia Lindgren. I was awarded a MRC Centenary Early Career Award (2012-2013) and a Medical Research Council (MRC) Special Training Fellowship in Biomedical Informatics (2009-2012). I had a postdoctoral position working on the data analysis work package for the MolPAGE consortium in Prof Chris Holmes’ group at the Department of Statistics in Oxford (2008).  I completed my PhD at Imperial College London where I developed novel multivariate pattern recognition methods with applications in metabonomics, working together with Professor Elaine Holmes and Professor Jeremy Nicholson.  I have an undergraduate degree in Engineering Biology (combined BSc/MSc) from Umeå University in Sweden. I was born in Västerås, Sweden, in 1978.
