Cindy Perscheid received her MSc degrees in IT-Systems Engineering in 2013 from the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) in Potsdam. Currently, she is research assistant at the Enterprise Platform and Integration Concepts chair of Prof. Dr. Hasso Plattner at the HPI. She has been working with in-memory technology for several years and started to work in the area of genome data analysis during her master’s degree. Her research interests in her doctoral studies focus on the application of machine learning techniques to genomic data sets in the context of in-memory databases. In 2016/2017, she paused her studies to take care of her newborn daughter.
