I am a molecular and cellular biologist with a long experience in non-coding RNAs (in particular microRNAs). My main interest is about computational biology. Currently, I am a member of the Brunak lab at the NNF Center for Protein Research, University of Copenhagen and I'm also an affiliated member of the Computational Biology Lab at the Danish Cancer Society in Papaleo lab. I am working on data integration of omics data, electronic patients records, analysis of laboratory tests and drug effects in cancer patients.

I am also interested in non-invasive biomarkers. In 2012 I designed and developed the miRandola database (, the first extracellular circulating microRNA database.
