During my master study in physics, I discovered my passion for computational biomedicine and method development in health care. Therefore, I decided to pursue a PhD in the interdisciplinary research field of computational biology. In my PhD projects I focus on the analysis of multi-omics data, 10x Visium, bulk, and single cell RNA-sequencing data, in chronic inflammatory skin diseases (cISDs). A hallmark of cISDs is a high degree of complexity  and disease heterogeneity making it challenging to treat and diagnose. In collaboration with the Eyerich AG, we are using the advantages of the three RNA-sequencing techniques to further explore the landscape of cISDs. Our objectives are to create molecular multi-classifiers and to provide patient specific drug treatments.
