Jean-Philippe Vert

Jean-Philippe Vert is a research scientist at Google Brain in Paris and adjunct research professor at PSL Mines ParisTech’s Centre for Computational Biology. His research interest concerns the development of statistical and machine learning methods, particularly to model complex, high-dimensional and structured data, with an application focus on computational biology, genomics and precision medicine. His recent contributions include new methods to embed structured data such as strings, graphs or permutations to vector spaces, regularization techniques to learn from limited amounts of data, and computationally efficient techniques for pattern detection and feature selection. He is also working on several medical applications in cancer research, including quantifying and modeling cancer heterogeneity, predicting response to therapy, and modeling the genome and epigenome of cancer cells at the single-cell level.
