Niko Beerenwinkel was born in Düsseldorf, Germany. He studied mathematics, biology, and computer science, and received his Diploma degree in Mathematics from the University of Bonn in 1999 and his PhD in Computer Science from Saarland University in 2004. He was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California at Berkeley (2004-2006) and at Harvard University (2006-2007) before joining ETH Zurich as assistant professor of computational biology.
Niko Beerenwinkel's research is at the interface of mathematics, statistics, and computer science with biology and medicine. His interests range from mathematical foundations of biostatistical models to clinical applications. Current research topics include haplotype inference from ultra-deep sequencing data, somatic evolution of cancer, reconstruction of signaling pathways from RNAi screens, HIV drug resistance, graphical models, and algebraic statistics.
He has authored over 50 research articles in the areas of computational biology, bioinformatics, biostatistics, virology, and cancer biology. His honors include the Otto Hahn Medal of the Max Planck Society and the Emmy Noether Fellowship of the German National Science Foundation.
