I take pleasure in developing computational methods to answer scientific questions and to make the world more enjoyable. I have obtained a Master’s degree in Computer Science from ETH Zürich with a focus on Machine Learning and got excited about using it for analyzing large microscopy image datasets.
Currently, I am developing and carrying out the computational efforts to automate cell organelle segmentation in electron microscopy data in Tom Kirchhausen’s lab at Harvard Medical School. Among other intriguing things, Tom’s lab uses various state-of-the-art microscopy imaging techniques to examine subcellular and molecular structures in order to advance the understanding of many diseases such as cancer and viral infections.
Before starting my current position, I spent time at the Janelia Research Campus for writing my Master’s thesis. I worked on 3D Neuron Reconstruction from electron microscopy images with Jan Funke, whose group mainly develops Computer Vision and Machine Learning methods for analyzing microscopy images of brains.
