Kurzer Lebenslauf

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and a Master’s degree in Bioinformatics, and since 2010 I am working as a Bioinformatician. My professional bioinformatics career started at LGC Genomics GmbH in Berlin, and in 2013 I returned from the company to the academic science at IZW.

Bioinformatics data analysis of high-throughput sequencing (HTS) data is the focus of my current position, including raw sequence data of various sequencers. I have broad experience in analysing HTS data, including the assembly of transcriptome and genome data, resequencing projects, and complex and customized downstream analyses.

Since my employment at LGC Genomics I was the replacement of the position of the system administrator, so I also gained knowledge in server administration and server backup. At IZW I am co-administrator of the FG2 Linux server, taking care of server

maintenance tasks including performing data backups. I have experience with maintenance and further development of database applications: at LGC Genomics I was responsible for the Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), including a MySQL database, and the company's web shop; at IZW I was responsible for the development of a new database on archival material, including data migration to a PostgreSQL database.

Currently I am involved and provide support in the field of sequence bioinformatics and software engineering.
