Matthias did his PhD in Medicine and Health Sciences at the Center of Medical Genetics at the University of Antwerp and University Hospital of Antwerp (Belgium). In his research on the neuroendocrine pancreatic tumors, he applied genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics sequencing techniques. Handing the resulting large amount of data posed a challenge that Matthias was very keen to tackle. He built on his earlier interest in programming and statistical analysis and was quickly able to use bioinformatics to analyse the diverse omics data. Within his research group, he was the point of contact for shaping bioinformatics projects, rolling out the ideas and performing analyses with concise reporting.

As a senior bioinformatician at BISC Global, Matthias is mostly focusing on software engineering, implementation of cloud solutions and development of scalable pipelines. From 2022 he will become the Development Team Leader in our European team.

“What really stimulates me at BISC, is the dynamics of our work, the open communication culture and the value that we bring to our clients. As a scientist, I also really like to wrap my head around difficult matters and investigate them in depth.”

Matthias used to be a semi-professional cyclist, and nowadays he is enjoying running. He also keeps a little notebook where he writes down interesting research and development ideas he comes across.
