What is your current position?

I am an Assistant Professor of Medicine – Tenure Track and Core Member at the Rutgers Institute for Health, Health Care Policy and Aging Research; and Department of Medicine – Division of General Internal Medicine, Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School; Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS).

Could you describe your scientific work in a short way to non-professionals?

I focus on dealing with unprecedented challenges in data science and on providing a better understanding of biology to revolutionize the field of precision medicine. My research is underpinned by the skills and resource development to build expertise in sequence-based genomic data analysis, clinical variant interpretation, and evidence-based diagnostic and prediction model development and validation. My goal is to advance medicine with personalized and genetic driven treatments.

I like being a mentor because...: I would like to serve the University of Wuerzburg for being a proud alumni. With my international experience, I hope to guide students in their career development and scientific achievements, especially in the fields of precision medicine, bioinformatics, genomics, and artificial intelligence.
