Hi I’m Marius; I’m an applied mathematician working at the intersection of machine learning and molecular biology. I have recently defended my PhD in Computational Biology (summa cum laude) in the group of Fabian Theis at Helmholtz Munich/Technical University of Munich (TUM).
I’m interested in 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. For example, I developed CellRank, a framework to study cell fate decision making using multi-view single-cell data including gene expression and RNA velocity.

During my PhD, I visited the labs of Dana Pe’er at MSKCC and Mor Nitzan at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem for three months each, funded through an Add-on Fellowship by the Joachim Herz Foundation, the Bayer Foundation and the Munich Center for Machine Learning (MCML). I actively collaborate with these and other groups in my current work.
