Phone: +49 (0)681-9300-460

is head of the program division Cytoskeletal Fibers and Junior Professor of Biological Physics at Saarland University. She studied physics in Leipzig and Toulouse. 2011 she completed her doctorate at the University of Cambridge on differentiators in stem cells. Before she came to Saarbrücken in 2013, she worked as a research postdoc at the Institut Curie in France on the migration behavior of confined cells of Immune system (dendritic cells).
