Postdoctoral Researcher



Publications of Dmitriy Drichel

Dmitriy Drichel has studied Physics and Mathematics with a focus on statistical physics and quantum field theory and at the Leibniz University Hanover, National University of Ireland, Maynooth and Trinity College, Dublin. He graduated in 2010 with a Diploma in Physics with the thesis “Logarithmic Conformal Field Theory with Supersymmetry”. Being drawn by the challenges and opportunities of newly emerging large biomolecular data sets, he moved to the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases in Bonn, Germany, where he worked under supervision of Tim Becker on a wide range of data science topics with a focus on human genomics and transcriptomics, with application to Alzheimer’s disease, familial adenomantous polyposis (FAP), alopecia, and hypertension, among others. In 2016, he obtained a PhD in Epidemiology with the thesis “Association Analysis of Rare Genomic Variants”. Since 2015, he has been working at the CCG as a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Michael Nothnagel. Dmitriy Drichel serves as the leader of the working group “Human Genetics” of the German Society for Medical Informatics, Biometry and Epidemiology (GMDS) and is a member of the International Genetic Epidemiology Society (IGES).

In 2018, he launched Drichel Analytics, an independent data science consultancy that has been servicing clients from pharmaceutical, life science, biotechnology and financial sectors. he is particularly interested in translational and interdisciplinary research, statistical analysis and machine learning, and high-performance- and cloud computing. He is a data visualization enthusiast and he believes that the development of novel computational infrastructures and data science methods, such as ultraeffcient algorithms is indispensable for tackling big challenges in health and disease.
