Hi there ! I'm a grad student in the RNA regulatory networks group at the Biozentrum, Universität Basel (Switzerland). Before that, I did a masters of engineering in bioinformatics. My current project is about computational predictions of miRNA targets. But so... what are miRNA and why do they have targets? If you want to know, it's likely you'll find some answers on the lab's website.

What are your main interests? My main interest is modelling biological networks with scientific or engineering ends. More specifically, I'm focusing on RNA regulatory networks.

What sorts of expertise can you bring to the group? Some knowledge in genomics and some experience with statistical data analysis of biological data.

What do you hope to get out of the CSSS? A better global understanding and familiarity with the field of complex systems, as well as hands-on experience with (dynamical or probabilistic) modelling of such systems. Finally, I hope to hear about their applications to different domains (engineering, biology, social sciences, ...).

Do you have any possible projects in mind for the CSSS? Nothing concrete yet, but I'll think about it and try to come up with something before the school starts.
