I am a Computational Biologist by education. I develop computational systems biology models and algorithms that further the understanding of transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation in the context of different human diseases. Currently I am working on lung diseases, like idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, and malaria. I am also working on algorithms and statistical approaches to improve analysis of next-generation sequencing data, especially RNA-Seq data. See the Projects page for more info. My supervisor is Ziv Bar-Joseph and I am a member of the Systems Biology Group.
I received a Bachelor in Bioinformatics from the Freie Universität Berlin. I did my Phd with the International Max Planck Research School for Computational Biology and Scientific Computing at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin. My supervisors were Martin Vingron, Knut Reinert and Hugues Richard. In September 2010 I started my Postdoc at Carnegie Mellon.
