Short Bio

Currently, I am working on wireless optoelectronic devices for application in Optogenetics. With that I hope to contribute to the understanding of natural neural networks. During my final year Master's project, I investigated novel materials for perovskite and organic photovoltaic devices. Check out my scientific publications on that topic.

Besides physics I like to cook, play beach volleyball and work on different projects involving electronics, web development and machine learning.

Feel free to contact me if you like to know more, have got any questions or have a great idea to work on together.
