I obtained my PhD in bioinformatics/molecular biology at Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz (Germany) in 2017. There I developed an NGS-based technology for highly multiplexed transcriptome-wide analysis of alternative RNA 3'end processing (TRENDseq). Next I used TRENDseq to screen for hundreds of knockdowns to disentangle the role of transcriptome 3'end diversity regulators in childhood neuroblastoma tumor regression.
My strong passion towards development of new technologies and working with massive data analyses is driven by the idea that there should be no technical limitation for discovery or creation.

I my free time I love playing guitar, music composing and surfing.
