I am a researcher in the Computational Biology Group affiliated with the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics . I work mainly in computational biology and biological data analysis, using tools from statistics, machine learning, computational modeling and computer vision. My main scientific interest lies in understanding principles of self-organization, that is how global order and structure can emerge from local random interactions.

I also teach computer science and maths at the high school and university levels and do some consulting and data analysis for the private sector (see here).
