I am interested in the complexity of organisms, highlighting their dynamic and systemic characteristics. Within these fields I find oncogenesis, pluripotency, compartmentalization, adaptation and development of beings especially appealing. For my studies in Göttingen I look forward to disclosing the line of research that particularly impassions me. Moreover I hope to learn the diverse techniques and methods that this program offers.
