Ufuk Kirik


Short profile

I am a multicultural, multilingual, multidisciplinary scientist with multiple areas of interest within bioinformatics. I usually have my code well-caffeinated and full of snakes, as well as taking a pirate’s approach to statistics.

Besides being prolific in bad puns; I work with analysis of, and method development for, mass-spectrometry proteomics data. On occasion, I take a shot at analysing next-gen sequencing data, as well.

Besides the scientific projects I often participate in extracurricular academic and social projects, such as being a representative for the students and postdocs association at CPR and organising collaborative workshops on developing teamwork and communication skills. I am fairly active on StackExchange sites, particularly Academia and StackOverflow.
