Victor Greiff, PhD
Dr. Greiff started his research group in 2018 at the University of Oslo (UiO), Department of Immunology. The group develops computational and experimental tools to decipher, read, predict and re-engineer antibody and T-cell repertoires with the aim to develop fundamentally novel immunodiagnostics, vaccines and immunotherapeutics. He uses his time away from science to catch up on current immunology topics, technology developments, and state of the art algorithms–wait a minute, that’s just more science!
Igor Snapkov, MD, PhD
Igor received his PhD in Cancer Immunology from the University of Tromsø (Norway). He is a postdoctoral fellow studying antibody and T-cell repertoires on the single-cell level in health and disease ultilizing high-throughput sequencing, immuno-mass spectrometry and large-scale epitope arrays.
Rahmad (Mat) Akbar, PhD
Mat received his PhD in Bioinformatics from the University of Saarland (Germany). He is currently working to resolve antibody-target binding using deep learning, computational immunology, and high-performance computing. He uses his time away from science to 🚴♂️ along the fabled Oslo Fjord and learn to put together tasty meals in the kitchen (he fails more often than not but he keeps forging ahead).
Philippe Robert, PhD
Philippe received his binational PhD from HZI Braunschweig and IGMM Montpellier (Institut de Génétique Moléculaire de Montpellier) via a fellowship from ENS Lyon on the topic Computational Modeling of T Helper Cell Differentiation. Presently, he is working towards designing multivalent vaccines to induce broadly neutralizing antibodies.
Milena Pavlovic. Milena is a PhD student working on immune repertoires and machine learning (co-supervised with Geir Kjetil Sandve). She obtained her BSc and MSc in computer science from the University of Nis, Serbia. She enjoys reading and learning about new languages. She doesn’t really enjoy food but she does sleep at night (not a robot from the future!). Although, she struggles sometimes to press “confirm you are not a robot” whenever a captcha presents this question.
Roberta Amoriello. Roberta did her BSc at the University on Naples and her MSc at the University of Florence, Italy. She nerds over neuroscience and the central nervous system under the supervision of Dr. Clara Ballerini (University of Florence) and Victor (UiO). Outside of science, she enjoys photography, so much so she is known to live by the principle: ‘a smartphone is not a camera, Iphone can suck it!’. And of course she enjoys Pizzaa!

Victor Undli, (UiO:Department of Informatics), together with Geir Kjetil Sandve. Victor is a MSc student in Data Science, UiO. He received his BSc in applied mathematics at the University of Oslo. Victor is a pizza guy, and his favourite by miles is pizza on the moon, the view makes it a complete experience. He also enjoys golf but we do not use that against him.
Aleksander Husa, (UiO:Department of Informatics), together with Geir Kjetil Sandve. Aleksander is a MSc student in Bioinformatics. He received his bachelor degree in electronics engineering from the Oslo Metropolitan University. He enjoys hiking in the Norwegian mountains (or at least the idea of it) and casual gaming.
Rune Hovde, (UiO:Department of Informatics), together with Geir Kjetil Sandve. Rune did his BSc at Department of Informatics, University of Oslo. He is currently doing his MSc in bioinformatics on the ImmuneML platform. He is a mechanical keyboard enthusiast, and can bore you with (seemingly useless) information about different key switches for hours on end. He also loves disc golf. Plays tournaments and casual rounds at every opportunity possible, also in every country he is visiting.
