My name is Rebecka Weegar and I’ve recently started as a PhD student in the Clinical Text Mining Group here at DSV. My supervisors are professor Hercules Dalianis at DSV and professor Søren Brunak at DTU, Technical University of Denmark.
My area will be text mining, and my aim is to find cancer symptoms and comorbidities in electronic patient records. My first focus will be to identify symptoms and patterns in patients diagnosed with cervical cancer.
I have an MSc (civ.ing.) in software engineering from Lund University/Lunds Tekniska Högskola, where I wrote my master thesis in natural language processing. I got my degree in the fall of 2014.
I have already met a lot of nice people here, and I am looking forward to working together with all of you at DSV.
