In my research I use high-dimensional (spatio-)molecular data in combination with computational approaches to understand how cells work together efficiently in order to form multicellular organisms and what happens if they fail to do so in the case of diseases such as cancer. I am interested in molecular (epigenome, transcriptome, proteome) as well as evolutionary aspects of this fascinating phenomenon. I completed my undergrad studies in Biomedicine at the University of Würzburg in 2012 and my PhD studies in computational epigenomics and malignant disease at CeMM and the Medical University of Vienna in 2017. After a short postdoc phase, I moved to the Broad Institute in Boston for my postdoctoral research in computational (spatio-)genomics. In September 2021 I will start my own lab at the Gene Center of the LMU Munich.
