I was trained as a physicist and physician in Munich (Germany) and continued with a residency in Medical Genetics and a postdoc in Bioformatics in Berlin (Germany). As a clinician scientist, I was able to identify the disease-causing variants in the gene PIGV in patients with Hyperphosphatasia with Mental Retardation (aka Mabry syndrome) by exome sequencing in 2009. Since that year, I am interested in the molecular pathway disease of glycosylphosphatidylinositol biosynthesis defects, of which PIGV is just one out of 30 genes involved. I contributed to establishing next-generation sequencing protocols in routine health care and soon realized that the large number of variants that these tests yield will require better and faster phenotyping. I therefore focused my research on deep learning methods to analyze medical imaging data.
After establishing the Institute for Genomic Statistics and Bioinformatics (IGSB) in 2017, I started collaborative research projects with groups at University Bonn but also internationally. One project that involves groups from all continents and that I enjoy very much is GestaltMatcher and its associated FAIR database. If you are interested in joining, please reach out!
