Profiles: didierdupertuis


I am a research engineer working on privacy in personalized medicine on a project funded by the Fondation Leenaards (in the framework of the SantéPerSo platform). I joined the lab in August 2018. My mission here is to develop mathematical models and implement them in interactive tools to introduce a wider public to the topic of genomic privacy. Prior to that I worked at the Swiss Statistical Office to work on data-management solutions. In 2016, I earned a MSc in Economics from HEC Lausanne. Before that, I completed a BSc in Computer Science at EPFL with a one-year Erasmus exchange at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, (Sweden). I love to bring data to life with vizualisations and delve into mathematical models to understand reality.
