Curriculum Vitae

PhD student, Center for Bioinformatics, Saarland University (10.2009-08.2013) 

M.Sc. in Bioinformatics at Saarland University, Saarbrücken, Germany (2009)

          Master's Thesis: Substrate Prediction of Membrane Transporters in Arabidopsis thaliana

B.Sc. in Computational Molecular Biology at Saarland University, Saarbrücken, Germany (2008)

          Bachelor's Thesis: Quantitative Analysis of Quorum Sensing in Vibrio fischeri


Research Areas

functional classification and annotation of membrane proteins

          - statistical analysis of protein sequences and sequence-based features

            (amino acid composition, topology information, multiple sequence alignments, physicochemical characteristics)

          - prediction of protein families and transported substrates using machine learning tools (a ranking method for small data sets)

modeling Quorum sensing and virulence factor formation in Pseudomonas aeruginosa

           - analysis of the signaling pathway by simulating combined regulatory and metabolic networks

           - to search for enzyme inhibitors or receptor antagonists that combat bacterial resistance

           - extended multi-level logical formalism
