Benjamin Schwarz

As a Ph.D graduate in Bioinformatics since 2005, I came to work during my career as a software engineer in an IT service company, an assistant professor and an engineer at the University of Strasbourg. I initially started my university training with a Master’s degree in Mathematics and Computer Sciences later completed with a Ph.D degree in Structural Bioinformatics at the IGBMC in Strasbourg. My Ph.D work focused on the applications of the alpha-shapes theory to the structural study of proteins and would later be part of the very foundations of the BIONEXT’s approach. With my interdisciplinary profile and my thorough knowledge of the techniques and theoretical models essential to BIONEXT technologies, I was considered a natural choice as the R&D director in our company.
