During my MSc in Physics I worked in biomedical research, developing novel microscopy techniques. The tools and techniques I worked on were (and still are) in use for studying DNA-protein interactions and doing CRISPR research.

I left research to pursue a career in software engineering, as it was clear that this was a skillset desperately needed in biomedical research. I have been working for AI startups for three years now, largely as a learning vehicle.

I intend to return to biomedical research once I have a complete toolkit of cutting-edge software tools under my belt. In the meantime I try to stay up to date with the developments in the field.
