Postdoctoral researcher

Treutlein Lab, D-BSSE, ETH Zürich


I am an EMBO postdoc in the lab of Barbara Treutlein at ETH Zürich (Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering) and an associated researcher at ETH’s AI Center.

I focus on understanding dynamical biological processes through the lens of single-cell genomics. To this end, I develop computational tools and apply them to solve biological questions that arise in processes including development, regeneration and reprogramming. In my postdoc, I’m particularly interested in studying the development of the human brain in organoid model systems, integrating spatio-temporal data across molecular modalities to understand regulatory relationships.

For my research, I have received multiple awards, grants, and scholarships, including the Rainer-Rudolph Prize, an Otto Bayer Fellowship, a Joachim-Herz Add-On Fellowship and an EMBO Postdoc Fellowship.

Previously, I completed my PhD in Computational Biology (summa cum laude) in the group of Fabian Theis at Helmholtz Munich/Technical University of Munich (TUM), where I co-developed CellRank and moscot.
