Bayer CropScience, Ghent, Belgium

After finishing hisPhD on integrative approaches for gene expression data analysis at the MPI-MP, and a post-doc in the RIKEN Plant Science Center, he joined Bayer CropScience in 2011. Here he is a senior scientist performing data analysis, algorithm and tool development to support trait research and discovery.

At BCS, they are improving agronomically important traits to help meeting the ever growing demands of increased crop production. Trait discovery is the search for new leads (genes, phenotypic traits, molecules) that have the potential to be beneficial for agriculture. In this process, they combine data from diverse species in an integrative fashion.
