Research Interest

My interests lie in biomarker development, quality control, data standardization and process automation. I work on whole genome bisulfite sequencing data which allows genome wide methylation profiling. More precisely, this involves defining relevant quality control metrics, automating our quality control procedure, data management and standardizing the data format in order to allow efficient data processing and distribution. This aims to facilitate and maximize reproducibility of downstream analysis such as, for instance, biomarker discovery or sample classification.

Current Projects In My Lab Include


Teaching Interest

My area of interest relates to genomics and bioinformatics. More specifically, I am interested in the numerical aspects of genomic analysis, ie biomarkers discovery, development, validation and related processes automation. During my career, I had the opportunity to supervise three students who, all, successfully completed their training and study programs.
