Research interest

I am currently a PhD student at Institute for Genomic Statistics and Bioinformatics and under supervision of Prof. Peter Krawitz

I am interested in developing computational approaches to analyze problem in human genetics and currently working on project "Prioritization of Exome Data by Image Analysis" and "Deep Phenotyping for Deep Learning". My research falls in machine learning, bioinformatics and genetics.
