Aniek Roelofs

Aniek has a BSc in molecular biology and obtained a MSc in bioinformatics from the University of Amsterdam. Part of her master’s degree was her internship at The University of Queensland, researching ancestral sequencing reconstruction, and an internship at the Queensland University of Technology, where she applied bioinformatic tools to describe the content of long duration audio recordings.

Upon completing her studies, she worked as a bioinformatician at Naktuinbouw, located in the Netherlands. Her research focused on the analysis of nanopore sequencing data and the development of software to detect pathogens in plants.

Aniek joined the Curtin Institute of Computation in March 2020 and supports the team in her role as a developer, working mainly with the Curtin Open Knowledge Initiative (COKI). Using her skills in data engineering and software development, she supports the COKI team by setting up structured workflows which are designed to import data from a variety of different bibliometric sources.


Her key competencies and research interests include:

  • Data Engineering and Software Development
  • Cloud Computing
  • Bioinformatics.
