Markus Karlsson

My name is Markus Karlsson and I´m studying at the engineering biology program at Linköping University. Currently, I´m writing my master’s thesis at the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the ISB group. I work with meta modelling and nonlinear mixed effects modelling and how they can be used, together with MRI data from patients with liver diseases, as possible diagnostic tools in the future. Previous work in the group has shown that meta modelling can be used to speed up parameter estimation and other work has shown that non-linear mixed effects modelling can help to improve the parameter estimation when the data has a lower quality. The idea of my project is to look into if and how these two methods could be combined.
