Research Interests

I am a bioinformatician supporting researchers with all kinds of "omics" projects. I am interested in applying and developing computer-based methods to approach a wide range of biological research questions. I have broad interests including evolutionary genomics, transcriptomics and epigenetics, and their application to ecological questions.
