Jan is a computer scientist and bioinformatician with versatile experience gained during his professional occupation in the life science industry (2007 – 2010), the time of his doctoral thesis (2010 – 2013) and the ongoing work in science as a postdoc (since 2013). His research at the forefront of bioinformatics allowed him to develop novel concepts for challenges and questions in a variety of fields such as phylogenomics and genome-based taxonomy. He seeks to establish state-of-the-art bioinformatic methods and pipelines to enable fellow researchers finding answers to scientific questions which were previously not addressable or only hardly so.
