Bioinformatician and computational biologist with a background in biology
I am a PhD in molecular genetics since 2018 (Carthage University, Tunisia). Driven by curiosity, I moved to explore molecular evolution as a computational biologist in Stockholm University. Now I redirected her skills to the exciting field of clinical research with focus on multiomics data analysis of Primary Sclerosing Colangitis (PSC).
I am also part of the Center for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics (CBB) where I redirect my bioinformatic skills to mentoring and helping others. If you need help with bioinformatics or biostatistics, please visit our website (see links section).
Reading is my drug and I read about science, psychology, history, politics and much more!
Primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) is a rare disease of the bile duct. Patients with PSC are very susceptible to develop malignancy (especially cholangiocarcinoma and colorectal cancer). We analyse and integrate different types of omics data in order to find new biomarkers for diagnosis and prognosis purposes. We also seek to understand the underlying biology and pathways of the disease.
