Joined the lab: October 2014
Background and Current Projects: I studied Biochemistry at the Freie Universität Berlin and received my B.Sc. in 2014. I did my Bachelor thesis in the lab of Prof. Heyd focussing the mechanisms of alternative splicing in the early secretory pathway of T-cells. During the summer of 2013 I did a research internship in the field of epigenetics, at the New York University in the lab of Prof. Reinberg. I joined the Hollfelder group in October 2014 and I am establishing a microfluidic droplet system to study single cells in 3D cell culture.
Interests: I like to travel, play the guitar and do sports. In particular I like running, bouldering and I recently started rowing.
