Marjan Mansourvar

Position: Assistant Professor, DTU Bioengineering
Categories: Computer Science
Location: Region Sjælland


I earned my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Malaya in 2014 and subsequently embarked on a professional journey that led me to Denmark in 2015. Before joining the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), I gained valuable experience in healthcare informatics at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU). My expertise spans across various domains including data analytics, data visualization, software technologies, and social network analysis, with a primary focus on data-driven health technology. Since joining DTU in April 2022, I have shifted my focus to bioengineering. My research at DTU Bioengineering revolves around life science automation and digitalization, where I leverage data science and artificial intelligence to drive advancements in biology and biotechnology. Specifically, I am dedicated to enhancing bioengineering processes through synergistic approaches with data science, digitalization, and automation.


As a seasoned data scientist, my motivation for joining the DDSA Mentoring Programme stems from a deep-seated commitment to fostering the growth and development of aspiring data scientists. By participating in this program, I aim to provide guidance, support, and practical insights to the next generation of data scientists, helping them navigate the complexities of the industry and accelerate their learning curve.Beyond individual growth, I’m also excited about the opportunity to contribute to the broader data science community and cultivate a culture of collaboration and knowledge-sharing.
