Master student, Berlin Institute of Health - Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin
After reading a newspaper article about a students project on circularization of Proteins for the iGEM competition, I decided to follow these students path and study Molecular Biotechnology in Heidelberg. One and a half years later I was part of a team for the same competition and was heavily involved with our bioinformatics efforts. I followed up on our project on predicting the function of a protein based on its amino acid sequence and wrote my Bachelors Thesis in this context. This was the foundation for a publication in Nature Machine Intelligence, which I am first author of. In Berlin I continue to work with Prof. Eils who also supervised our iGEM team, now focussing on machine-learning for genomic data and digital health. One year into my Bachelors I started studying Math in parallel to my main subject out of a general interest and some doubts whether Molecular Biology was the right choice. I stopped these efforts after a year when I became part of the iGEM Team. I'm happy to discuss these aspects as well. I enjoy communicating my science and am always interested in interdisciplinary discussions. I'm 23 years old, study in Heidelberg, work in Berlin, come from Bielefeld and plan to do a PhD in Berlin, starting in 2020.
