About Me

I started my education as a Microbiologist and later pursued my master's in Bioinformatics. I further specialized in developing computational models for neurodegenerative diseases (PhD). I particularly enjoy working with structured interoperable data models and provide easy-to-use solutions for biologists and bioinformaticians. I have also worked as a science/project manager where I was managing multiple projects relevant to Artificial intelligence and machine learning, organizing mid and large-scale conferences and workshops. Apart from that, I also have experience in organizing and establishing scientific outreach activities for strengthening the scientific community. Within GHGA, I will be responsible for harmonization, standardization, and generation of data and metadata. I will further support defining standards for data access, security, and privacy in close collaboration with data generators and users.
