The group's main focus is to design algorithms and faciliatory data structures for searching patterns from text or relational data. The research is mostly basic research, but there is some cooperation with applied scientists (applying the algorithms to real world data).
If you are interested in the algorithmics, mathematics or statistics, we have interesting theoretical topics. On the other hand, if you are interested in practical data mining or machine learning (especially on biological data) but not afraid of reading theory or programming, ask Wilhelmiina. We can offer you interesting challenges!
