Research Experience

2020 - NOW: DigiMed Bayern: DigiMed Bayern’s goal is to guide Bavaria with a lighthouse project into the medicine of the future. It combines comprehensive datasets of patients diagnosed with atherosclerotic diseases and integrates multi-dimensional -omic data. The aim is to reach P4 medicine (predictive, preventive, personalized, participatory) as it is one of the world’s most promising developments for improved, holistic and efficient healthcare. I am developing an ethically and legally compliant, highly secure and sustainable biomedical workbench that is the corner stone of the project (link).

2020: Pint of Science: Event manager - It started as a project to show Alzheimer’s patients how medical research is conducted in labs back in 2012. Today, it is an international festival that brings people from all horizons in pubs to sip science together. I’ll be participating in the organization of the event in Nancy (link).

2019 - 2020: DUNE/éole: Research engineer - Is a digital project lead by 6 French Universities. I have been designing and interfacing cloud based digital vaults, leveraging blockchain technology to secure and certify GDPR compliant data. Being close to the European group of work for blockchain and education means that this advances can be ported at the European scale (link).

2018: MS-DECODER: Master student - Is a high throughput sequencing software I have been developing. Multiple Universities collaborate for the project and thus I had the chance to work with a broad spectrum of programmers, mathematicians, physicists and chemists. I also worked with ECE Illinois students to develop a novel statistical approach for sequence validation. This will be part of a new publication and a patent.

2017: IMMODGEL: Undergraduate student - Is a european project that revolutionizes the approach we have of materials applied to health by developing active, functional, and intelligent bio materials. I have been working with the team that transformed the larynx surgery by developing and implanting with success the first artificial larynx after total laryngectomy. I have been working as a data scientist for digital imaging, data analysis, computational biology as well as project management (link).

2015 - 2016: NGB & YEBN: Chief communication - Part of the New Generation of Biotechnologists and more broadly the Youth European Biotechnology Network I participated in the organization of national and european scope projects: Forum, conferences, student orientation…
