Ludger Goeminne received his master in Bio-Science Engineering in 2013 at Ghent University. From September 2013 to May 2019, he was a PhD student in the Clement group, supervised by prof. dr. ir. Lieven Clement and co-supervised by prof. dr. Kris Gevaert from the VIB-UGent Center for Medical Biotechnology.

In the statOmics group, Ludger focussed on methods to improve quantification in MS-based proteomics. In 2015, he demonstrated that peptide-based models outperform summarization-based approaches. Encouraged by these results, he developed MSqRob, an R package that combines legitimate statistical modeling for relative protein quantification from peptide-level data with an easy-to-use graphical interface. Additionally, Ludger won the best flash talk presentation award at the Eubic Winter School 2017 and he was a member of the vibes 2017 PhD Symposium Organizing Committee. After his PhD, Ludger worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the group of prof. Johan Auwerx at EPFL in Switzerland. He is currently working as a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Prof. Vadim Gladyshev at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School in the USA.
