Curriculum Vitae

Diploma in Physics, Bonn University (2008)
PhD (Dr. rer. nat.), Applied Laser Physics and Laser Spectroscopy, Bielefeld University (2012)
Postdoc, Biotechnology and Biophysics, Würzburg University (2012-2013)
Postdoc, Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, Goethe-University Frankfurt (2013-2014)
Project Group Leader at the Department of Systems and Synthetic Microbiology, MPI Marburg (10/2014-04/2018)
Elected member of the Junge Akademie at the BBAW and Leopoldina 2015
Research Group Leader at the Department of Systems and Synthetic Microbiology, MPI Marburg (since 05/2018)

Research Area: Single Molecule Microbiology

The group focuses on the application of techniques from the emerging field of super-resolution microscopy to study microbial cell biology. By combining physical concepts of imaging, photo-manipulation of fluorophores and quantitative read-out analyses, we aim at a single-molecule description of cellular structures and processes.
