A Bit About Me

Initially, the idea of regrowing arms using genetics sparked my interest in biology early on. During my university years (still only having 2 arms), I found another topic that fascinated me even more: Plants. Immobile organisms that are forced to face every environmental hardship they encounter. Just like a meticulously fine-tuned machine, they do so by sensing and integrating multiple stimuli and adapting accordingly. During my PhD I hope to contribute to the understanding of this intricate system


During my free time I enjoy photography, mostly of animals and landscapes. If I don´t feel like going out I like to spend my time playing board or computer games.
