Carsten Peterson is a Swedish theoretical physicist and professor at Lund University. His current field of research is computational biology. After finishing his PhD studies in theoretical physics at Lund University in 1977, Peterson worked as a postdoctoral researcher at NORDITA in Copenhagen in 1978-1979 and at Stanford University in 1980-1982. He then returned to Lund, where he spent the rest of his career, except for a sabbatical period in 1986-1988 when he worked at Microelectronics and Computer Technology Corporation in Austin, Texas.

dbo:abstract
  • Carsten Peterson is a Swedish theoretical physicist and professor at Lund University. His current field of research is computational biology. After finishing his PhD studies in theoretical physics at Lund University in 1977, Peterson worked as a postdoctoral researcher at NORDITA in Copenhagen in 1978-1979 and at Stanford University in 1980-1982. He then returned to Lund, where he spent the rest of his career, except for a sabbatical period in 1986-1988 when he worked at Microelectronics and Computer Technology Corporation in Austin, Texas. Peterson's field of research was originally theoretical particle physics and statistical mechanics, but in the late 1980s he turned to pattern recognition and optimization, and from there to the intersection of physics and biology. In particular, his research has been focused on gene regulation, biomarkers and stem cell regulation and differentiation. Peterson was elected to the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in 2006. (en)
