Dick de Ridder
Dick de Ridder is currently professor of Bioinformatics at Wageningen University, The Netherlands. His research is concerned with the development and application of computer algorithms and models to study the living cell at the molecular level, based on high-throughput measurements. In particular, he is interested in how to integrate such measurement data with prior knowledge about a problem to be solved in (machine learning) algorithms. He therefore focuses on the challenges that occur at the interface between generic algorithms and specific bioinformatics problems. The long-term research question he addresses is: how can biological prior knowledge be transformed and used to achieve optimal generalization at minimal experimental cost? Dick de Ridder has authored almost 100 peer-reviewed publications in pattern recognition and bioinformatics.
