About the author

Alice Limonciel

Alice Limonciel, PhD

Senior Scientist | Data Interpretation
biocrates life sciences, Innsbruck, Austria

Alice holds a Ph.D. in molecular biology from Medical University Innsbruck, Austria and worked as a postdoc in the Netherlands. With many years of experience analyzing and interpreting metabolomics, Alice has a deep understanding of the challenges faced by scientists and the importance of turning data into meaningful stories.

Her dedication to making metabolomics accessible to a wider audience has encouraged her to develop the method behind the STORY principle that is now accessible to all in this book, making it an invaluable resource for anyone looking to deepen their understanding of metabolomics data interpretation.

Follow Alice on LinkedIN for more ideas around metabolomics and data interpretation. Some of the ideas for this book derive from the podcast Alice hosts called The Metabolomist.
