My name is Nic. I’m a PhD student in computational biology at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf, Germany. My research focusses on the evolution of circadian clocks in general with a special focus on cyanobacteria. Besides my PhD work, I advise our universities iGEM Team and teach data science classes to biology undergrads with a focus on Python. Back in 2013, I spend a semester lab rotation in the lab of Titus Brown, which got me interested in Open Science. Since then I’m trying to work more open, help others, especially ECR, to be more open with their work and try to spread the word. I was part of Wikimedia Germany’s first Open Science fellow program and am part of protocols.io ambassador program since last year December.
