After my Masters (Ludwig Maximilians University / Technical University of Munich, Germany) and a subsequent 18 month travel around the globe, I joined the BrombergLab in 2016 to finish my PhD in collaboration with the Technical University of Munich (Prof. Burkhard Rost). I continued my journey as a PostDoc in the BrombergLab starting in 2018.

My main goal is to better understand the association between variant effects (mutations, i.e. changes of amino acids in protein sequences) and protein function and thus possible links to disease. For this purpose we are developing improved, machine-learning based algorithms to predict those effects of mutations in proteins. I am also involved in many other projects in the lab, amongst others metagenome function annotation and speeding up large scale sequence queries. I further maintain our high performance compute infrastructure and local webservices.
