I did my PhD in Forensic Entomolgy in Bonn, Germany. One of my projects involved developing a temperature dependent growth model for insect larvae feeding on dead bodies. After that I became interested in modelling data and joined the Institute for Systems Biology at Monash University in Melbourne. I specialised more and more on analysing gene expression data such as Microarrays and RNA-seq and finally joined the Cellular and Molecular Metabolism Lab at the Garvan Institute in Sydney as a post-doc and bioinformatician. I worked on a project investigating new drug treatment strategies in a mouse model with liver cancer.
Following a move back to Europe I joined the Lindgren group at the Big Data Institute as a computational biologist.
