# Research

In my former life I did my PhD in Bioinformatics and worked as a research scientist in the Evolutionary Bioinformatics Group at the IEB in Muenster, Germany. My research was focused on aspects of molecular evolution. In particular, a prime focus of my research was to understand how domains, the structual and functional components of proteins, are used as recombination 'modules' forming the diverse protein functionalities which can be observed in nature. Beyond domain combinations, I explored the formation of new domains, and studied the impact of new domains on the functional repertoire. My research utilized methods of comparative genomics to reconstruct the evolution of proteins and to help provide a quantitative model of modular protein evolution. Furthermore, I developed a number of computational tools to aid the analysis of modular evolution, and sequence anaylsis in general. Beyond modular evolution, I worked on methods for conducting over-representation analysis of Gene Ontology terms (and their visualization).

Currently, I work for a division of Abbott Diagnostics (Abbott Informatics).
