Research Interests

My interest is the development and application of algorithms, tools and workflows to generate knowledge from biological data. I want to use the vast amount of publicly available data and software to unravel some of life's mysteries. I believe in open source, open data, open science and reproducible research. Currently my focus is on genomics and molecular biodiversity. It fascinates me to deciffer genomes as the blueprints of organisms. The analysis of whole communities on a molecular level promises exciting insights into complex ecosystems.
