Benjamin Georgi reveived his M. Sc. in Bioinformatics in 2005 at the Freie Universität of Berlin. From 2005-July 2009 he was a doctoral student in the algorithmics group of the MPI for Molecular Genetics. His dissertation work was concerned with cluster analysis of heterogeneous biological data using context-specific independence mixture models.
