I'm PostDoc at the Center for Computational and Theoretical Biology (CCTB).
I studied Biology und Informatics at the University of Würzburg and did my PhD in the Graduate School of Life Sciences.

My research interests are the development and application of algorithms, tools and workflows to generate knowledge from biological data.
Currently my focus is on model interpretability in machine learning.
As part of the ESF ZDEX project I also aim to improve knowledge transfer between the university and companies.
