I started my research in chemoinformatics in the University of Bonn doing the MSc Life Science Informatics. For my masters thesis I developed the first multi-target activity landscape (visualizations that showed both structural and biochemical information of molecules) that could scale to large number of targets.
I did my PhD in the same university from 2012 to 2016. My thesis focused on data mining and visualization of complex chemical data sets. I also gained experience in machine learning and molecular modelling during my time in Bonn.
After I obtained my PhD, I went to the University of Sheffield as a Marie Curie postdoctoral researcher. There I worked for the EU project D3i4AD, developing multi-task machine learning models based on deep neural networks and matrix factorization techniques to support phenotypic screening campaigns.
I became a Lecturer in Chemoinformatics in the Information School in October 2018.
