I am interested in developing new approaches for treating degenerative diseases by tackling their root causes, i.e. aging damage, and in related methods to do that, from regulatory networks and machine learning/data mining of array data to evolutionary genomics and benchwork. My professional interests range from scientific work in life sciences to IT and cryptography due to my experience as software developer and IT security professional. Through my current college study of Bioinformatics, I am aiming for further key qualifications in scientific research and a deepening of my skills in algorithms, life sciences and computer science.
