Currently, you find me at the centre for advancing electronics Dresden (cfaed), which is part of the Excellency Cluster at the Technical University Dresden. Here, I conduct my research to further our understanding of the underlying physical principles of biological systems, working in Dr. Benjamin Friedrich’s Biological Algorithms group.
From 2014 to 2016, I was at the Max-Planck-Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems in Dresden (Germany). There, I studied problems at the interface between physics and biology together with Prof. Frank Jülicher, and with Dr. Vasily Zaburdaev in his Complex Dynamics of Cells group.
In 2013, I received my doctorate in physics from the University of Aberdeen (U.K.) working with Dr. Alessandro de Moura from the University of Aberdeen and Prof. J. Julian Blow from the University of Dundee.
Before that I read for a Diplom degree in Biosystems Engineering (Biosystemtechnik) at the University of Magdeburg (Germany). My studies equipped me with a profound understanding of dynamical and complex systems, and with the ability to tackle biological problems theoretically as well as experimentally. One of my years on the degree course, I spent at ProBioGen AG in Berlin (Germany) to gain hands on industrial experience of conducting research in an industrial setting.
