  • 2005: Diploma in Biochemistry from Universität Tübingen (Germany)
  • 2009: PhD from Humboldt Universität (Berlin) and Deutsches Rheuma-Forschungszentrum (Germany)

Research interests

  • Understanding gene-regulatory networks through combination of mathematical modelling (deterministic and stochastic) with quantitative experiments
  • X-chromosome inactivation
  • High-resoluation microscopy, image analysis, next-generation sequencing
