I'm a PhD student of life sciences at the University of Würzburg. As a fellow of the Graduate School of Life Sciences I started my PhD in July 2014. My research interests are 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.
I spent a lot of my spare time developing fun projects and solving hacking challenges. I'm interested in system administration, penetration testing and all kinds of outdoor activity.
