Dr. Tobias Karakach received his PhD from Dalhousie University in Halifax, NS, Canada in Chemometrics with a focus on the analysis of the then emergent high throughput gene expression microarray data. He developed methods for the analysis of these data starting from quantification of signals from raw images, pre-processing the data, ultimately, analyzing them using various statistical approaches. The focus of his thesis was in modeling microarray data designed to answer ordinal biological observations. He followed his PhD work with post-doctoral experience at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) focusing on the analysis of NMR- and MS-based untargeted metabolomics, and proteomics data. He then proceeded to conduct independent work as a research officer, focusing on analyzing data derived from bioanalytical technologies such as magnetic resonance, mass spectrometry, hyperspectral imaging, fluorescence, Infrared, and other vibrational spectroscopic tools. In 2017, Dr. Karakach moved to the Vlaams Institute voor Biotechnologie (VIB) in Leuven, Belgium and took a position as a staff scientist in charge of bioinformatics at the laboratory for Angiogenesis and Vascular Metabolism. During this time, he expanded his repertoire of bioinformatics skills, specifically as apply to single cell RNA/DNA sequencing and added valuable biological knowledge to his computational expertise. He then moved to Winnipeg, MB Canada, to set up a bioinformatics core laboratory at the Children's Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba (CHRIM). He splits his time between traditional core-facility activities, teaching and development new computational methods for the analysis of temporal multi-omics data. He has over 25 high impact publications in the diverse field of Bioinformatics. You can find more about his facility at www.chrimbioinformatics.org
