I'm currently working towards a master's degree in biotechnology here at the University of Life Sciences, Vienna. My main focus lies on bioinformatics, with a special interest in data visualization, AI, text processing, and reproducible science. What I love most about this field is its rapid development, where new exciting tools are emerging every week.

Right now I am doing research on how to do association mapping, i.e., linking genotypes to phenotypes. I want to compare traditional variant-based genome-wide association (GWAS) and machine learning approaches.

I enjoy programming and sharing with the community, so together with my brother, we developed CRAN/E, a modern and advanced front-end for searching R packages hosted on CRAN. The code is available as open source on GitHub, and we do not earn any money with this project.
