PhD in Biochemistry, Ludwig Maximilian University (Munich)
I received my PhD in Biochemistry from the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. I am fascinated by spatiotemporal organization, a hallmark of all living systems, and how it arises from a mixture of biochemical and purely physical and mechanical factors. In my research so far I have worked towards the mechanistic understanding of intracellular protein reaction-diffusion systems and phase separation processes using experimental approaches such as in vitro reconstitution and single molecule techniques. In the future, I would like to pursue an interdisciplinary approach at the interface of biochemistry, synthetic biology and biophysics to understand spatiotemporal pattern formation across scales.
