Hi there !

I'm a grad student in the RNA regulatory networks group at Biozentrum, Universität Basel (Switzerland). My current project is about predicting miRNA targets.

1. What are your main interests? Feel free to include a "pie in the sky" big idea!

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

2. What sorts of expertise can you bring to the group?

Some knowledge in genomics and some experience with statistical data analysis of biological data.

3. 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, ...).

4. Do you have any possible projects in mind for the CSSS? (Recall that you will all be working in groups on at least one project with the goal of presenting your progress on the last day and finishing up a paper by sumer's end.)

Nothing concrete yet, but I'll think about it and try to come up with something before the school starts.
