I’m Matthias and since a few months I’ve been living in Stockholm. The city of water, Spotify, and Karolinska Institutet. All three are perfect places to relax and code at the same time. Actually, I’m working here as a postdoc in bioinformatics to elucidate secrets in cancer research. I mainly use proteomics techniques to understand why a tumor cell is a tumor cell. Before that I finished my PhD in biochemistry and bioinformatics at the Technische Universität München in the Sieber Lab. At that time, we tried to develop new strategies against multiresistant bacteria.

We are currently living in a data-rich time meaning that we can access millions of data points in no time. However, making sense of this data flood is a bottleneck, especially in bioinformatics. So, let’s make information out of data. Higsch* information!

(* higsch is a combined word from German hübsch and chic)
