I am a bioinformatician working in pathogen genomics. My main research interest is to find patterns in DNA sequencing data and to apply this knowledge to organisms causing infectious diseases. In recent years, these patterns translated to sequence differences corresponding to transmission of Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains; or to distinct physical entities, such as viruses in metagenome data or plasmids in bacterial whole genome sequencing data.

I am passionate about teaching and supervising, because I like to share my enthousiasm for bioinformatics as a way to do difficult tasks better, faster, stronger.
