Personal profile

Current Research Interests

I am interested in exploring the molecular mechanisms of activity dependent bulk endocytosis (ADBE), the identification of key proteins involved in this process, its regulation and the importance of ADBE for the synaptic network in health and disease. 


  • Supervision of several Bachelor and Master students in the lab
  • Teaching in basic biochemistry practical course (lectures and lab work)
  • Coordinating of online learning and questioning modules
