A quick and dirty template-based webpage about me


Researchwise I am somewhere located between Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, and Computer Science.


I studied Biomathematics in Greifswald, Germany, from 10/2004 to 08/2010. I wrote my diploma thesis "Development of data / image evaluation to integrate 3D-gelelectrophoresis into high-throughput-environments" under supervision of Stefan Funke and Jörg Bernhardt.


During a research stay from 10/2008 to 03/2009 at the PICB in Shanghai I evaluated under the supervision of Andreas Dress images of skin tissue cells using the copulas in order to analyze the spatial distribution of proteins.


From 08/2010 to 10/2013 I did my PhD at the University of Southern Denmark under suppervision of Daniel Merkle and Rolf Fagerberg. On the 24/10/2013, I successfully defended my PhD thesis "Exploring Chemical Networks Using Declarative and Analytical Methods".


Since January 2015, I have been a Postdoc in the Bioinformatics Group of Heinz Himmelbauer at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna. Associated with the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics, Berlin, we aimed to classify heterozygous substructures in the genome of the sugar beet using a graph-based approach.

Since September 2016, I analyze the RNA-Seq data from time-series experiments with cell lines of Trichoplusi ni in a project with the Austrian Centre of Industrial Biotechnology (acib).
