Research & Journey in academia
Being a theoretical physicist by training, I am inspired by the beauty and effectiveness of biological mechanisms. My work evolves around topics from cell biology and fundamental questions in theoretical biophysics. I enjoy pure theory as much as hands-on work in the laboratory.
