LEAD SCIENTIST, CAMBRIDGE CELL NETWORKS
I was involved in sales, marketing, and development of toxicology-centered pathway analysis database/software. I led a team of up to 10 scientists performing curation for in-house and client databases. I have communicated the project with a client and designed the curation workflow (defining sources, curation rules, and ontologies).
PhD GRADUATE STUDENT, VBC - VIENNA BIOCENTER
During my PhD, I work in Dr. Werner Aufsatz laboratory, Epigenetics, and RNA silencing. I have gained training in various molecular biology and epigenetics, from bench experiments to sophisticated data analysis.
