I studied biology at Jacobs University Bremen. Later I did my master's at University of San Francisco on the immuno-modulation strategies of cytomegalovirus. After my master's I joined a gastroenterology lab at Stanford University School of Medicine as a research assistant where I did research in neurogastroenterology. Currently I am a PhD student at Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology in the department of Genetics.
