I am a Data Scientist holding a PhD in Life Sciences and have worked on all stages of the data science pipeline ranging from extraction and tidying of highly complex data sets, to building web applications, automated reporting pipelines and machine learning models.

Before I started as an independent consultant, I worked at Molecular Partners for 5 years as an Expert Scientist. I was coordinating all projects that involved Mass Spectrometry and developed an automated data analysis platform for the measurements we performed.

I did my PhD at the ETH in the group of Prof. Dr. Markus Aebi under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Markus Kuenzler. I worked there on a novel class of Ribosomally synthesized and post-translationally modified peptides (RiPPs) from the beautiful fungus Omphalotus olearius which we named the borosins.
