I studied Computer Science in Bielefeld, Germany, and received my “Diplom Informatik” with distinction in 2006. My project was a typechecker for the compiler of the programming language ADP, which is suited for Dynamic Programming problems, a frequent type of problems in Bioinformatics. My talk at Strangeloop gives an introduction to this topic.

In 2011, I completed my PhD in Bioinformatics and Genome Research, working on RNA secondary structure comparison by means of forest alignment in Bielefeld. Check out my thesis if you are curious about comparing forests. Until 2015, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Research in Immunology and Cancer of Université de Montréal.

My research interests include RNA secondary structure analysis, alignment and folding; dynamic programming and efficient solution of Bioinformatics problems; languages and compiler construction.
