I am a scientist working in Computational Biology. After studying my basis year in Physics at ETH Zürich (Switzerland), I continued in Computational Science and Engineering ("Rechnergestützte Wissenschaften") also at ETH Zürich. I then followed up with a PhD in Neuroinformatics, where I studied how neural networks grow and self-organise.
I then made the life decision to go abroad and worked as a Postdoc and Research Fellow at Newcastle University (UK).
Currently I am a lecturer and lead an interdisciplinary research team at the University of Surrey in the UK. I also work occasionally as a consultant, providing expertise in Data Analytics, AI and Artificial Neural Networks.
