I am gay and I am a computational biophysicist.//
After studying physics at the Universities of Konstanz and Stuttgart, I did my PhD at the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics in Frankfurt, Germany. Currently I am doing a postdoc in computer science at Stanford University.
In my research, I use statistical physics and machine learning on supercomputers to understand complex biological phenomena. Most of my work is dedicated to lipid membranes and membrane proteins. In Frankfurt, I served as the PhD representative at our institute for three years and founded the regional student chapter of the German Physical Society.
Besides science, I find joy in reading, running, and photography.
