About me

Hi, I am a computational biologist and work at the intersection between statistical genetics, biology and computer science. I’m the co-creator of the Michigan Imputation Server and developed software for the mitochondrial DNA (haplogrepmtDNA-Server, haplocheck). I’m also co-leading the Askimed project, the next-generation eCRF system designed for medical studies in the cloud. Check out my Google Scholar Profile, follow me on Twitter or have a look at my projects on Github.
