Research Interests

I was trained as a classical bioinformatician within the program Bioinformatics & Genome Research at University of Bielefeld (Germany), where I obtained both my Bachelor and Master of Science degrees. My research interest switched to statistical data analysis on biomedical data for which I conducted my Bachelor’s and Master’s Thesis at ETH-Zurich, Basel (Switzerland), in the groups of Computational Systems Biology and Computational Biology, respectively. In addition, I served as an intern at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston (USA), during my Master studies. For the latter two projects I was awarded two independent scholarships. As a PhD Candidate at University Maastricht (Netherlands), Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Harvard Medical School, I am now conducting doctoral research studies on Radiogenomics (finding a connection between quantitative imaging features of tumors and their molecular data), Toxicogenomics (understanding how potentially toxic chemicals influence molecular mechanisms of exposed cells), and Pharmacogenomics (understanding how drug responses are influenced by the genomic profile of an individual). I aim to contribute in promoting precision medicine in cancer by this approach of integrative and reproducible data analysis.
