Dr. Veselkov’s research group focuses on developing computational/AI methods that can make a difference in data-driven global health and disease. He has led the development of a series of field-changing data analytics frameworks to augment emerging molecular ("-omics") profiling technologies into clinical decision support, and population health management. His group expertise combines the use of a diverse range of computational techniques from signal processing, imaging informatics, network-based machine learning, natural language processing and high-performance mobile computing for information extraction from heterogeneous biomedical datasets. In collaboration with Vodafone Foundation, Kirill is currently leading DreamLab-DRUGS/HyperFoods and CORONA-AI projects - one of the biggest citizen science projects with over 250K engaged users. The projects harness the idle processing power of tens of thousands of smartphones, network-based AI and large -omics data to hunt for drug-food combinations against cancer genomes and emerging COVID-19 disease. His translation interests are precision medicine/nutrition, AI-driven drug repositioning, and digital pathology.
Kirill has received a World Economic Forum (WEF) Young Scientist Award, and served on the WEF Global Agenda Council on the Future of Computing. His research was featured by technology programs BBC Click, Sky News/Swipe, and multiple media outlets.
