My research is about mechanical measurements of cells and liquid biomolecular condensates or protein droplets. I use and develop high-throughput microfluidic techniques and analysis tools for this. My work especially focuses on unravelling time dependent effects of biomaterial deformation. My motivation is that these insights help uncovering new distinctions between cell types and to find correlations between cell mechanics and diseases.

I studied physics in my Bachelor and Master with an emphasis on biological physics at the Technische Universität Dresden from 2011-2017. After that, I started my PhD in the lab of Jochen Guck and relocated to the MPL in 2019.
