  • Research interests

    Research interests

    During my doctoral thesis, I addressed the role and dynamics of scaffolding proteins at larval neuromuscular junction (NMJ) of Drosophila melanogaster by means of molecular biology, confocal laser scanning microscopy and 3D image analysis. Motivated by this experience, I developed a strong interest to apply advanced fluorescence imaging techniques like multi-colour STED imaging and light sheet microscopy (including clearing techniques) to various sample preparations. As a member of the Combinatorial NeuroImaging Core Facility (CNI), I am also responsible for maintaining our various microscope setups as well as training users in their operation and post-acquisition image analysis.

  • Curriculum vitae

    Curriculum vitae

    After my apprenticeships to become a radio and television engineer (1992) and a state-approved educator (theoretical exam in 1997) I got my University-entrance degree at the evening school AGW in Wiesbaden in 2000.  To study Neurobiology I moved from University of Mainz to Magdeburg in 2003. After getting my diploma in Neurobiology in 2007 at Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology, I decided to stay in the lab of Ulrich Thomas as a PhD student. There I completet my PHD degree in 2020. From 2012 onwards, I am a member of the Combinatorial Neuroimaging Core Facility at LIN.
