Starting from October 2019, I will join the Chair of Experimental Bioinformatics at TU Munich as a postdoctoral researcher. I will be working on both the SyMBoD and LipiTUM projects which have an emphasis on systems biomedicine.
From 2015 until recently, I have been pursuing my Ph.D. in Bioinformatics at the Chair of Genome Oriented Bioinformatics (TUM). Previously, I received my Master’s degrees in Bioinformatics from The University of Nairobi (Kenya) after a brief visiting scholarship position at The Ohio State University (Columbus, Ohio) in Erich Grotewold’s Lab. Before that, I did my BSc in Biotechnology and Biochemistry at Kenyatta University (Kenya). During my PhD, I developed a novel method on how to use condition-specific protein-protein interaction networks in cancer to discover biomarkers at the multi-cancer, cancer-type, and cancer sub-type levels.
