You live and learn.

The above phrase in my opinion really hits the nail on the head. It applies for people like me, who have just graduated from uni and definitely still have a lot to learn, but also for “old hands” in their fields, who might want to learn something new. Udacity (launched by a Stanford professor) brings uni courses to the internet for free and allows everyone to finish them at their own pace. In my opinion this is a really great platform. I am currently enrolled in two courses, each of them consisting of seven week-long units. After each “hexamester” of seven weeks new courses are held and some of them are re-run. There are two other popular platforms available which I haven’t tried yet though, Coursera (Stanford, University of Michigan, University of Pennsylvania, Princeton) and edX (MIT, Harvard). Definitely worth a try.

ECCS 2012

The European Conference on Complex Systems has accepted my paper Evolution and Growth of Molecular Networks for Disease Classification. I will be giving a 15 minutes oral presentation at the conference in Brussels.

Welcome

Welcome to my personal website, where I present my work and research activities. As I have just graduated from university, not much has been added yet. But hopefully, this will change over the course of time.

I am currently a research assistant at the Bio Systems Analysis Group at the University in Jena. In September I will leave Germany behind and move to the UK, where I am going to commence my PhD at the Institute for Complex Systems Simulation at the University of Southampton.
