My main interest since I’m young is in life sciences. However, I have worked in the field of cancer research, for 8 years in academia in UK and then for 7 years in Belgium, for a biotech company specialised in diagnostic assays based on epigenetics biomarkers. Therefore, I’ve got now a particular interest in oncology, epigenetics and diagnostics. To improve my skills in data analysis, I attended, in 2013, a course in biostatistics. Practicing biostatistics, also meant learning about R and SAS programming. Like for any other topics that I studied, I got involved and interested in these new subjects. It is why, later on I registered for a MOOC in epidemiology and R statistics. To complete my training and help me working with data, I took part in a bioinformatics course and learnt about Linux, SQL language and Perl programming. Data analysis and R programming were also at the agenda. Getting new knowledge and looking for new projects to work on, is like reaching a new crossroad, full of curiosity and enthusiasm.
