I am currently pursuing my PhD degree under the joint supervision of Prof. Lennart Martens (CompOmics lab) and Prof. Jan Tavernier (Cytokines Receptor Lab) at Ghent University and VIB, both in Ghent, Belgium. My research is centered on protein-protein interactions, specifically related to the high-throughput array-MAPPIT technique that determines interacting proteins in mammalian cells. In order to store, analyze and interpret the resulting high-throughput experimental data, I am building a system as a combined (meta-) data management and analysis environment.
I have acquired my masters in Life Science Informatics from Bonn-Aachen International Center for Information Technology (B-IT), University of Bonn, Germany. During my master studies, I did my internship on enrichment of human protein-protein interaction network in Max Plank Ageing, Cologne, Germany under the supervision of Dr. Bianca Habermann. Later I started my master thesis in Max Plank Plant Breeding and Research (MPIG) also in Cologne, Germany in Targeted Assembly and annotation of Rec4a mutants under the supervision of Dr. Korbinian Schneeberger.
