Working days Tuesday, Wednesday afternoon, Thursday

My main active research themes at this moment are the development and application of statistical inference and machine learning methods for the predictive analysis of high-dimensional data in medicine (with emphasis on cancer research), the development of mathematical and statistical methods for the modelling and analysis of complex many-variable systems (with applications in physics, biomedical sciences, computer science, and economics), and the mathematical analysis of random networks and graphs. I also work on neural networks, stochastic processes, immunology, and data science. More detailed information and links to publications and seminars can be found on the website of my research group `Physics of Machine Learning and Complex Systems' ( my personal website (



Ancillary activities

Ton Coolen conducts research into the development and application of new statistical and machine learning methods for the analysis of data that contains data points with multiple and heterogeneous characteristics. These methods are used in designing and targeting cancer treatments.
