ABOUT ME

 

I have always been interested in the fundamental interconnectedness of all things, so I started my academic endeavors in life sciences. Classical biological approaches are usually bottom-up and deal with the vast complexity and interconnectedness by detangling and isolating the components.

However, mathematics paired with statistics and computer sciences can generate clever algorithms that extract new knowledge out of the sea of information and data we are drowning in. This field, called data science, is the path I am currently following.

More about me ...

 

The basis of my current work consists of the following two scientific fields:

Scientific Computing: a field I stumbled into while expanding my skillset necessary for new interdisciplinary approaches in life sciences. Long story short, I fell in love with the algorithmic and mathematical part of computer sciences. This study offered me a strong mathematical, logical and algorithmic foundation but also the opportunity to dive into high-performance computing, in particular into numerical, parallel and cloud-based approaches.

 

Data science: a field I ventured into while working in life sciences. As member of one of the research groups that performed a genome-wide tissue specific screen I soon realized modern life science approaches produce far more data than could be transformed into useful knowledge. I bring a refined scientific approach paired with a keen eye for the bigger picture and in-depth algorithmic knowledge.
