German Research Foundation (DFG)
I studied biophysics at the University of Kaiserslautern and did my diploma and PhD thesis in neurobiology there. For my postdoc, I went to the Rockefeller University in New York to the lab of Nathaniel Heintz. My scientific work focused, among other things, on the neurobiological basis of the auditory system and nicotine addiction, using electrophysiological methods in brain slices.
After a 10-month parental leave I started my work at the German Research Foundation (DFG). Here I process research proposals in the basic neurosciences, advise applicants and am involved in various projects to adapt the application process.
