I studied Geophysics at the University of Cologne and I did my Ph. D. in Space Plasma Physics in the Space and Planets group of Prof. Dr. Joachim Saur at the Institute of Geophysics and Meteorology in Cologne, Germany.
In my Ph.D., I investigated spectrally and spatially resolved images of the Jupiter moon Ganymede using Hubble Space Telescope observations to better understand the plasma environment and the magnetic field of the largest moon of our solar system.
In my postdoc, I turned my gaze from the stars back down to earth, making my way into Neuroscience. I am currently working on analysis strategies for multi-fluorescence in-vivo imaging data, electrophysiological recordings and behavioral data of transgenic mice to better understand the neuronal processes related to the Hippocampus and the Alzheimer’s disease.
Apart from scientifically dealing with pixels, I enjoy to collect them in my free time.
