Head of Computational Biology

NextRNA Therapeutics


Experienced computational biologist focused on developing strategy in Biotechs with need of genomic regulation and data integration analyses. 13 years of experience in biological data analysis using the most well-established tools and contributing to novel algorithms to improve the quantification and visualization of genomic data. I approach scientific challenges with passion and believe that a collaboration and not an individual alone can successfully conquer them.
