I am interested in new analytical technologies in the context of molecular pathology. An example is the application of machine learning techniques on large-scale DNA methylation studies. The combination of these technologies has already proved excellent in helping neuropathologists classify central nervous system (CNS) neoplasms. Another interest of mine is the molecular characterization of rare familial neoplasms which are not currently well-represented in medical literature.
