Biography

Who I am?
As a PhD in Life and Health Sciences, I have chosen to apply my skills to the BabyDetect project. Currently a post-doctoral researcher in bioinformatics at CHU de Liège, I am passionnate for data analysis and the development of pipelines for NGS data. With 5 years of experience as a bioinformatics specialist, I am determined to dedicate myself to innovative advancements in the fields of genomics and healthcare.
Why do I want to participate in Baby Detect?
I am involved in Baby Detect because it’s an exceptional opportunity to apply my experienced bioinformatics skills to a crucial neonatal screening project in Wallonia. Contributing to this project allows me to directly impact the early detection of genetic disorders in newborns, offering prospects for early intervention and care to enhance the lives of families.
