Data Scientist and Bioinformatician

I journeyed through various biochemistry and microbiology laboratories to finally end up writing code. Wrote my thesis in R and its topic was the investigation succession and functional shifts in marine deep subsurface microbial communities exposed to the seafloor by mud volcanism, by using large amounts of next generation sequencing data (Contribution to the Census of Deep Life Project (Deep Carbon Project, Sloan Foundation). My scientific interests lie in biodiversity research, metagenomics and ecoinformatics. Later I started applying the data analysis skills learned in academia in industry, and acquired additional web development and data visualisation skills.
