Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, 10115 Berlin, Germany
Ph.D in veterinary science, M.sc in applied microbiology, veterinary scientist, microbiologist, microbial biofilm researcher. I was a Junior postdoctoral at University of California Santa Cruz, focusing on survival strategies of Helicobacter pylori, with a particular focus on biofilm and genes associated with this mode of growth. I'm currently a a senior postdoctoral at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin developing new tools to study morphogenetic movements in macrocolony biofilm.
