In July 2017, Associate Professor
Taous Meriem Laleg Kirati joined the Computational Bioscience Research Center (CBRC).
Her expertise in applied mathematics, control systems and signal analysis is a
welcome addition to the interdisciplinary nature of the Center. Since joining
CBRC, she has been closely working with other CBRC faculty to answer questions in
the biological domain. Currently, she is collaborating with Professor Vladimir
Bajic on developing novel computational methods for identification of genomic
signals based on signal processing and machine learning.
Professor Laleg joined KAUST in
2011 as an Assistant Professor before being promoted to Associate Professor
last year. Prior to coming to KAUST, she worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow and
then as a Researcher at the French National Institute for Computer Science and
Applied Mathematics in Bordeaux, France.
Her research group, the
Estimation, Modeling and Analysis Group (EMAN) consistently publishes in top-ranked
journals and have produced over 30 research papers, 3 books chapters and 83 conference
proceedings articles since it was formed.
