Currently, I am Post-Doc in the Statistics and Computational Biology research group headed by Korbinian Strimmer at the Institute of Medical Informatics, Statistics, and Epidemiology (IMISE) of the University of Leipzig. In July 2012 I finished my PhD on multivariate strategies for variable selection and identification of biomarkers in high-dimensional omics data at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of the University Leipzig.

Between 2002 and 2008 I studied Statistics (B.Sc. and M.Sc.) at the Department of Statistics of the University of Munich. During my studies I worked as a research assistant at the Max-Planck-Institute for Psychiatry.
