Professor Meriem Laleg Joins CBRC

-By Rose Gregorio

In July 2017, Associate Professor Taous Meriem Laleg Kirati joined the Computational Bioscience Research Center (CBRC). Her expertise in applied mathematics, control systems and signal analysis is a welcome addition to the interdisciplinary nature of the Center. Since joining CBRC, she has been closely working with other CBRC faculty to answer questions in the biological domain. Currently, she is collaborating with Professor Vladimir Bajic on developing novel computational methods for identification of genomic signals based on signal processing and machine learning.

Professor Laleg joined KAUST in 2011 as an Assistant Professor before being promoted to Associate Professor last year. Prior to coming to KAUST, she worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow and then as a Researcher at the French National Institute for Computer Science and Applied Mathematics in Bordeaux, France.

Her research group, the Estimation, Modeling and Analysis Group (EMAN) consistently publishes in top-ranked journals and have produced over 30 research papers, 3 books chapters and 83 conference proceedings articles since it was formed.
