I came to Munich 2 months ago to work at TrustYou as a web application developer. I recently graduated as a computer engineer in Venezuela, and being able to start working in a different country has been a really exciting challenge! I enjoy learning new technologies, but I also love yoga and dogs!

I joined Bayer as a Bioinformatics Consultant and Project Manager within R&D IT two years ago. Coming from a strong background in bioinformatics I’m mostly involved in IT projects dealing with all kind of OMICS related topics. Besides my interest in bioinformatics I’m further interested in music and arts.

Prof. Burkhard Rostclose

Professor at TUM and Head of Rostlab
The phantastic thing about Bioinformatics, I believe, is that we try to unify two most impressively changing things of modern life - computers and biology. Bioinformatics thus opens great opportunities! Because it is a relatively new field, everything in Bioinformatics is new and so easy to discover. This is a field in which your impact is very immediate. My free time I most like to spend with my family and daughter.
