Biomedical Data & NLP

Invitae


I worked at Invitae as a full-stack intern during the summer of 2020. More specifically, I worked on parts of Moon, which is an AI tool that diagnoses rare diseases from genetic sequence data.

My first project involved extracting data from biomedical databases, transforming the data, and then extending a part of the UI to visualize the data.

Secondly, I improved a text labeling algorithm that helps employees process academic papers more quickly. I ran experiments and implemented an improved machine learning algorithm in Python using the spaCy NLP framework. At the end of my internship, we successfully deployed the improved service.

Native Newspaper App

Twipe Digital Publishing


In August 2019, I worked as a front-end intern at Twipe. They offer a SaaS platform for edition creation, distribution & triggers. I worked on a very small team developing a new React Native version of their main newspaper app. I got to write production code from day one and had a lot of responsibility as an intern, which allowed me to learn and grow quickly.

Parkinson Detection


For the Data Science course at Técnico Lisboa we analysed a dataset of voice signal data to try to detect whether someone suffers from Parkinson's disease. We used data science techniques to explore and preprocess the data and to perform unsupervised learning and classification.

Game of Wolves


Game of Wolves is a browser-based, traditional role playing game (RPG), intended to be played on a smartphone. It adopts cutting-edge technologies like face recognition and augmented reality and also uses specific features of smartphones like the GPS and camera to create an exciting user experience.

We developed this game with a team of 6 computer science students during the academic year of 2018-2019. This project was my bachelor's thesis at KU Leuven.
