About me

Driven by the curiosity to understand how a construction design will be robust, I studied mechanical engineering. My focus was mainly on solid mechanics and in a one-year postgraduate program on fluid mechanics. For my PhD, I looked for an opportunity to combine my knowledge of mechanics with my interest in music and acoustics. For my thesis, I worked on mechanics of hearing and aside I did research on musical instruments. The intriguing biophysical processes of hearing lead me from engineering to fundamental research. I applied my ability in quantitative modeling to the spindle formation during the cell division process.
