Wouter Meuleman’s research focuses on the organization of regulatory elements in the human genome and their relation to cellular state and gene regulation.
Although technological developments have made it possible to construct genome-wide maps of regulatory elements across hundreds of human cellular conditions, the scale and complexity precludes routine utility of such maps. Wouter develops computational and machine learning approaches to reduce their complexity, while maximally retaining relevant information.
Prior to joining Altius, Wouter did postdoctoral work at MIT and the Broad Institute. He obtained his PhD in Computational Biology from Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands.
