I am a postdoctoral fellow in Furlong Group at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg, Germany.

Formerly, I was a Ph.D. student within the Computational Biology Group at the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Mechanics at the University of Warsaw. During that time, I spent two years at the Genome Institute of Singapore.

My research is focused on computational biology, regulatory genomics and machine learning.



  • TACO: Transcription factor Association from Complex Overrepresentation, predicting overrepresented motif complexes in genome-wide sets of regulatory regions
  • Romulus: Robust multi-state identification of transcription factor binding sites from DNase-seq data
