I am currently a Postdoctoral fellow in cellular biology in the lab of Prof. Clemens Cabernard (University of Washington, Seattle). My interest in interdisciplinary science stems from my undergraduate engineering studies at EPFL (Lausanne), as well as my master’s thesis in the lab of Terry Maratos-Flier (Harvard Medical School, Boston). I am most likely to post about cell mitosis, cell mechanics, optogenetics, biophysics and computer vision, as well as novel molecular tools.
