About me

Studying bioinformatics and genome research resulted in a skill set combining strong knowledge in molecular biology with profound expertise in computer science. Undertaking a Bachelor’s thesis in plant genetics and participating in iGEM gave me a good understanding of molecular biology and wet lab experiments. Switching to the field of epigenetics of cancer for my Master’s thesis at the Diamantina Institute, University of Queensland, enabled me to learn a new programming language (R), how to analyse omics data and human diseases, and provided me with the necessary background in human cancer, data mining and machine learning. The awoken interest in genomic medicine and translational research led to a PhD to discover genetic biomarkers for disease onset, prognosis and personalised treatment in oesophageal adenocarcinoma at the University of Queensland.
