I completed a M.Sc. in Computer Science with a focus on Bioinformatics at the University of Freiburg, Germany. In 2008, I commenced a Ph.D. at the University of Western Australia in which I developed novel methods for the computational prediction of non-coding RNA structure. In 2012, I joined CSIRO as an OCE Postdoctoral Fellow to work on plant pathogenomics. In 2018, I joined the Australian National University as a Research Fellow at the Centre for Genomics, Metabolomics and Bioinformatics (CGMB), working with Eric Stone (http://biology.anu.edu.au/people/eric-stone). I am also a visiting scientist at CSIRO and an Adjunct Research Fellow at The University of Western Australia.
