Sharon Bruckner (Hüffner)

I obtained my PhD at the International Max Planck Research School for Computational Biology and Scientific Computing (IMPRS-CBSC) at Freie Universität Berlin.

My PhD research was on network analysis and graph algorithms, in particular fuzzy clustering of networks using spectral analysis, with applications in bioinformatics.

Nowadays, I am working for Nexgate (a division of Proofpoint) as Senior Data Scientist.
