PhD Student

My interest involves the combination of bioinformatics, chemoinformatics, structural biology and data integration in computational drug design targeting G protein-coupled receptors.

I am especially interested in applying Computational biology methods for the characterisation of the remaining orphan GPCRs to unravel unknown physiological signalling systems. This includes identifying new neuropeptides, which potentially act as endogenous agonists, by proteomics mining, filtering, evolutionary fingerprinting and maschine learning.

Additionally, I am trying to identify the molecular determinants of selectivity in the GPCR-G protein signalling system to facilitate receptor mutation predictions for G protein coupling. 

I am conducting my research as a member of the Gloriam Group.

As the president of the CBioVikings, RSG International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB), I am trying to provide a networking platform and learning opportunity for Bioinformaticians and computational Biologists in the Copenhagen Area.
