Since November 2011
Working on software solutions for integrative visualization of modelled and measured genomic data. Actively participating in the educational activities of the department. Experienced in giving lectures, assisting in practicals and supervising student internships.
Google Summer of Code 2013 - Mentor
May 2013 --- August 2013
Mentored the PathSBML plugin for PathVIsio in GSoc 2013. The plugin allows import, validation, automatic layouting and export of SBML moels in PathVisio.
Google Summer of Code 2012 - Student
May 2012 --- August 2012
Participated in the Google Summer of Code program in 2012 as a student. Working on PathVIsioRPC- the XMLRPC interface for PathVisio.
January 2011 --- June 2011
Gained experience working on multidisciplinary research, collaborating with both biologists and computer scientists. My project was to extend a pre-existing microarray data analysis pipeline adding statistical analysis and biological evaluation modules.The pipeline has been used in many courses and workshops since. The portal is also used in the data analysis course for bachelor and master students of molecular life sciences at Maastricht University (www.arrrayanalysis.org).
September 2010 --- December 2010
Analysed metabolomics data to ascertain an extraction procedure using ESI QTOF Mass Spectrometry, which allows extraction of maximum number of metabolites in both positive and negative ionization modes. Seven extraction methods were compared and metabolites extracted using each were grouped, which also helped us to determine the best extraction procedure for a group of compounds. Additionally, developed an in house metabolite database for use in the project as well as a second database for snake venom for an ongoing project in the Toxicology Department of Manipal Life Sciences Centre.
