Summary

I am an interdisciplinary researcher who likes to tackle challenges with new approaches. My social skills and communicative attitude help me gather people from different backgrounds to complete tasks. Having a profound knowledge in different scientific disciplines further helps delegating my team to successfully complete projects under time constrains. With an ability to absorb information fast and learn new things quickly I am ready for the next challenge.
