M.Sc. student in Cognitive Healthcare and Lifesciences Department (Computational Systemsbiology group)
Zurich Research Laboratory, Zurich, Switzerland



Jannis currently develops computational methods for precision medicine in cancer research. This includes 1) integrating molecular and omics data with prior knowledge about protein-protein interactions to predict treatment responses and 2) developing deep generative models of molecular compounds with anticancer properties.


Jannis obtained a BSc in Cognitive Science from University of Osnabrück (Germany), wherein he focused on computational neuroscience and conducted his thesis about unsupervised learning of hand-centred representations in a neural network model of the primate visual system at the Oxford Centre for Theoretical Neuroscience and Artificial Intelligence, University of Oxford. Focusing on applying machine learning methods in the field of cancer research, he's now striving for a MSc in Neural Systems and Computation from ETH and University of Zürich.
