– Applying mathematical analysis of complex patient data and measurements of the body’s communication to the brain via the nervous system can provide unexpected and valuable insights. Our preliminary analyses have identified signatures in the electrical activity in the vagus nerve correlating to specific cytokines. The analyses underline the need to continue developing neural interface technology in order to improve and facilitate biologically relevant analysis of the electrical activity in the vagus nerve during inflammatory diseases, says Henrik Hult.
Henrik Hult graduated in Engineering Physics from the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in 2000. He received his PhD in Mathematical Statistics at KTH 2003. He has spent a year as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Copenhagen in 2004 and another year and a half as a postdoctoral fellow at Cornell University 2005-06. Professor Hult then worked as an assistant professor at Brown University in 2006-08. Since 2015, he is a Professor in Mathematical Statistics at KTH.
