I am a Research Fellow at the University of Manchester, working in Bioinformatics and Computer Science. I am also a guest researcher at the Vrije Universiteit.My research interests include scientific workflows, semantic discovery, and applying ontology technologies to biological data
I started to work with B. subtilis during my diploma thesis in Marburg, analyzing the gene expression pattern during sporulation and their control by the four sporulation sigma factors. This work was continued during my PhD thesis in Greifswald. In collaboration with Prof. Bremer and Prof. Marahiel in Marburg we also studied additional adaptation processes of B. subtilis, like the adaptation to low temperatur and high osmolarity.
I am now working as a staff scientist in Prof. Völkers lab in
