PhD Student

He was born in Austria, completed a BSc in Physics with focus on complex systems and networks in Vienna before working among Ramon Grima and Peter Swain at the Systems and Synthetic Biology Centre Edinburgh where I combined Microfluidics, Time-lapse Microscopy and Stochastic Modeling to quantify extrinsic sources of noise. I was awarded a MSc degree in Systems Biology (with distinction) from the University of Edinburgh in 2015. Currently, I am in the joint Systems Biology PhD Program of the University of Zürich and ETH. Before joining the Pelkmans lab I developed a microfluidic chemical signal generator in the Tay lab at ETH which allows dynamic and noisy cell stimulation to study signalling pathways. In the Pelkmans lab I integrate experimental and theoretical methods to advance our understanding of noisy signal processing and to enable targeted intervention.
