SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS
During my Bachelor's studies developmental biology attracted my attention. In particular, I am interested in RNA localization and how it is utilized by a broad range of organisms and cell types with many different aims. Nevertheless, I also want to extend my knowledge in other parts of molecular biology, for instance in cell biology, genetics and biochemistry not least because all these areas overlap with developmental biology in both methods and content.
