Welcome I have studied Biology at the Free University of Brussels (ULB). I went on with a PhD in Evolutionary Genetics at the Unit of Evolutionary Genetics in the Institute of Molecular Biology and Medicine (IBMM). While it was still too early to work with high-throughput sequencers, I generated a substantial amount of sequence data with Sanger capillary sequencers and quickly had to rely on computers and programming to manage my data and analyse it. That's how I got interested in Computer Science and decided to learn how to do things the correct way (as opposed as just getting my work done). I started evening classes at the Faculty of Computer Science of the University of Namur (FUNDP). After my PhD, I worked for three years as a bioinformatician in DNAVision, a spin-off of the ULB, where I concentrated on microarray data analysis and managed research and customer projects. With my education in CS and my work experience in a private company, my work and research interests focused on the design and implementation of rigorous and reproducible analyses work flows. These are the skills I am applying and improving since I joined the Cambridge Centre for Proteomics (CCP) and EMBL-EBI, where I apply computational methods to explore, understand and interpret proteomics data. In October 2013, I set up the Computational Proteomics Unit (CPU) to further expand my research in computational proteomics.
