PhD candidate, MPI-CBG/ TU Dresden
I am a Cell Biologist by training, and a teacher and mentor by passion. I pursued a Masters and gained expertise in the field of cytoskeleton. Currently I am trying to set-up a methodology to reconstitute and engineer the motility of a protein system that is notoriously challenging to work with. This involves me test and sandbox various micro-manipulation tools and have them moonlight to my use. If successful, it will forever transform how we study the system of interest for the field. Other than my work I mentor and help undergraduate level students to develop the skill-set and interest in STEM subjects, while guiding them additionally to appear for international competitive examinations for higher studies.
