About me

My background is in molecular biology and bioinformatics, specializing in genome informatics and IVD/PGS applications. I have worked on bioinformatic projects in academic and commercial settings. As a bioinformatics consultant I am now available for freelancing project work in the area Mannheim/Ludwigshafen/Heidelberg/Frankfurt and worldwide remotely of course.

I can work in a team with lab scientists or software developers but I can also plan and execute your projects independently.
Previous employment included:

  • Development and application of a world-leading genome annotation pipeline in a bioinformatics team (Ensembl, mostly Perl, some Java)
  • Infrastructure development and data management as part of a large international collaboration (ENCODE, mostly Perl)
  • Development of genomic testing applications, specifically for in-vitro diagnostics (IVF, chromosomal screening, BlueGnome Ldt. & Illumina, Perl, MatLab, Python, C++)

Most projects required design, prototyping and testing phases. Some were executed to ISO 13485 (medical devices) standard. Writing good documentation for software and projects as well as peer-reviewed scientific publications is something I consider important and enjoyable. Helping customers to use my software and develop new ideas with them is a main driver for me.

Further keywords for my services: high-throughput methods, pipeline development, database design, website design, data analysis, Unix/HPC/Cloud systems, bash scripting, NGS data processing, IVD & LDT development, genetic screening applications, reproductive health, Illumina sequencing, bioinformatics consultancy.

Bioinformatics Consultancy


Send me an email to propose a bioinformatics project you might like my help with as a freelancer/contractor.
This could e.g. be an NGS pipeline, a PGS data analysis, or consultation on a specific genome informatics question.
We can have a call or a meeting to discuss the details.


I work out a proposal for you containing a plan of action and an initial estimate.


Throughout the project we stay in contact to discuss the details and any questions you might have.


I work on your project either independently or as part of your team.
Development work is usually done remotely, either on your servers or on my own.
The work includes documentation and testing.


I deliver the results to you and we discuss any further changes you might need.
Projects are usually charged by the day in a flexible manner.

We can continue to work together as partners whenever you need bioinformatics consulting 
or development of custom scripts.
