Jelena does her Ph.D. together with Computational Systems Biology group at IBM research Zurich and Quantitative Mass Spectrometry group at Institute of Molecular Systems Biology of ETH Zurich. Jelena is working on computational approaches for biomarker selection from high-throughput biological data in the context of metabolic syndrome and prostate cancer. This work is part of the PrECISE (Personalized Engine for Cancer Integrative Study and Evaluation).
Jelena has graduated from Department of Molecular and Biological Physics of Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Russia in 2010, and in 2012 she has received the master degree with major in Applied Physics and Math and minor in Bioinformatics from the same university. During the master thesis at Research and Training Center on Bioinformatics, IITP RAS, she applied comparative genomic and data mining approaches to study the transcriptional regulation of nitrogen fixation in alpha-proteobacteria that fix atmospheric nitrogen in symbiosis with soybean, alpha-alpha, and other legumes.
Her general research interests include Bioinformatics, Precision Medicine, and Data Analysis.
