(under construction)

I am leading a research group as Project Leader at the Max Planck Institute for Biochemistry.

Many real-world systems depend on structural properties to perform their functions. A prominent example of this phenomenon is the realtionship between structure and function in biomolecules. The 3D spatial arrangement (geometry/structure) of biomolecules tells us a lot about which kinds of interactions are favorable and therefore which biological functions are accessible to DNA/proteins/RNA. As we gain access to more data on structured objects we need to develop algorithms capable of extracting these structure-function insights in a scalable manner.

Open Positions

We are looking for a highly motivated PhD student interested in working at the intersection of structural biology, deep learning and pattern mining on graphs. (posting)(submit application)
