Patterns in molecular structure: computational methods of pattern discovery


Postdoctoral Fellow: Max-Planck-Institute for Biochemistry, Germany
Ph.D., M.D.:  University of Munich, Germany

Fields of Interest:

  • Cellular and Molecular Structure and Function
  • Computational and Systems Biology

Research Interests:

I am interested in recurring patterns in molecular structure: the computational methods of pattern discovery, their characterization regarding features, context and distribution,  their association with function in proteins, and their utility for protein engineering and design.
