I am a post doctoral researcher in the lab of Prof. David Haussler (not related)
at UC Santa Cruz, working on text mining and genome annotation.
I currently work on genocoding the literature, using text indexing/text mining to better link genomes to academic papers.

quick CV: After M.Sc. degrees in 2005 in computer science and business from Universitaet Potsdam (Berlin, Germany),
I obtained a PhD in the lab of Jean-Stephane Joly at the CNRS Gif-sur-Yvette, Paris, France
on the neuronal development of C. intestinalis in 2009. After that I completed a short
postdoc on genomics and text mining in the lab of Casey Bergman at the University of Manchester, England.
In 2011 I moved to UC Santa Cruz.
Reviewed articles for: Bioinformatics, Plos Comp Biol, Nucleic Acids Research, Current Genomics, Genome Biol and Evol.
