Post Doctoral Researcher
Columbia University Department of Biological Sciences I received my PhD in molecular biology and biophysics from the ETH Zurich under the supervision of Prof. K. Locher. Soon after my PhD I joined the lab of Prof. G. King at the University of Queensland. I received a NHMRC post-doctoral fellowship and gained experience in research based project management i.e. planning of project phases, management of resources, funding applications, data acquisition and analysis, presentation of results, teaching, report preparation, and supervision of technicians and students. Guided by a strong interest in membrane proteins, I specialized in protein crystallography for a long time. Widening my area of expertise, I am now entering the exciting field of systems biology at Columbia University.
