Institutions: VU University Amsterdam
I am a beginning PhD student at the VU in Amsterdam and study the heterogeneity of yeast cells at near zero growth conditions. I have a versatile background in Biophysics and Systems Biology.
Institutions: Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
I am working at the boundary of wet-labs and mathematical modeling, trying to understand the regulation of the eukaryotic cell cycle. I started working with yeast in a group of Systems Biology (Prof. Edda Klipp, Humboldt University, Berlin). Before that I studied biology, engineering and did research on the nuclear pore complex.
