Chemometrics: Data analysis in chemical sciences and omics


In this talk, Rasmus Bro from University of Copenhagen, will present an overview of how data analysis is used in chemistry to improve food quality, allow for early detection of cancer and for understanding complex processes.

Special emphasis will be given to the unique possibilities that arise when data can be properly represented as tensors (so-called multi-way arrays). Tensor data analysis provides unique opportunities for e.g. non-invasive chemical profiling and other interesting types of information harvesting that could not otherwise be achieved.


Rasmus Bro is Full professor at Copenhagen University, Faculty of Life Sciences since 2007. He is also affiliated with Stellenbosch Universit, South Africa, and Università Degli Studi Di Modena e Reggio Emilia, Italy. Prof. Bro's research is interdisciplinary and it spans the fields of multi-way analysis, data mining, chemometrics and spectroscopy, among others. He has received numerous awards for his contributions to the development and proliferation of chemometrics in research, including His Royal Highness The Prince's Foundation for individuals who have increased the prestige of Denmark in research. His work has led to the publication of over 150 peer-reviewed articles, and numerous invited talks and popular science articles.
