Irina has a Medical Degree followed by PhD in biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of Hamburg. From 2015, she mainly focused on the bioinformatics part of the research and moved from the wet-laboratory to the data analysis. She was working with a variety of deep-sequencing data, including Ribosome profiling, RNA sequencing, and Oxford Nanopore sequencing.

Irina joined OVG in November 2019 as a postdoctoral medical bioinformatician. She is involved in the statistical analysis of big datasets derived from the vaccine trials. In addition, Irina is developing the new pipelines allowing to increase the quality of the output from sequencing data.
