Yeast is an important platform biocatalyst for the production of high-value chemicals. I am interested in the development of novel synthetic biology tools for high-throughput screens of pharmaceutical-producing strains.

I am fascinated about how organs are initially formed during development, how the tissue expands almost exponentially until it reaches homeostasis where several different signaling pathways cooperate together to strictly regulate cell proliferation, differentiation and cell death, and how the tissue is repaired upon injury. During my PhD project I will be focused on understanding the regulatory mechanisms responsible for controlling cell fate decisions at these stages, particularly during regeneration of the colonic epithelium.

The utilization of human pluripotent stem cell models to study and treat neurological disorders is of great interest to me. I aim to use these models to acquire in-depth knowledge on the developmental trajectories that give rise to neuronal subtype specification within different brain regions. We can then generate these cell types in vitro with high purity, and use them for disease modelling, drug screening and regenerative therapies.

How does a stem cell know what to become? The push in the right direction, called “priming” is known to be directly regulated on the level of enhancer activity. My main interest is grounded in understanding the molecular basis of enhancer regulation, especially how specific promoter-enhancer interactions are facilitated and how these interactions are induced by an Erk1/2 signal. This is very interesting as we know that the induction of the Erk-pathway in the early mouse embryo is important for embryonic stem cells to differentiate and to give rise to the primitive endoderm.

I have always been curious about the ability of protein structures to display such diversity and adaptability even though their building blocks (amino acids) are the same. For instance, CRISPR-Cas systems are all based on the same principles but different classes and types have distinct architectural features. Because of this, my main interest is the structure and functional mechanisms of novel CRISPR-Cas complexes and their possible adaptation to biotechnological applications.

I am fascinated by cell fate decisions, how cell lineages and organs arise in a precise spatio-temporal manner during development, and also how different cell types retain their identity when surrounded by other cell types. Transcription factors and signaling pathways play a crucial role in cell fate decisions and elucidating the precise regulation of key factors required for fate choices is of importance to understand development. During my PhD I will be focusing on Notch signaling mediated fate decisions in the pancreas and investigating the precise regulation of key transcription factors in this context.

I am focused on programming, statistics and machine learning, including models from the field of Deep Learning. Coming from a Master in Statistics – covering several multivariate statistical methods, causal analysis, linear and non-linear generalized regressions, survival models, random forests, neural networks and Bayesian nets – and an industry trainee program, I am always looking for new opportunities to efficiently apply and extend machine learning models and methods for explaining their decisions. At CPR I will contribute to the field of proteomics.

Protein post-translational modifications (PTMs) are chemical modifications that regulate protein activity, localization, and interaction with other molecules. PTMs increase the functional diversity of the proteome, and understanding them is critical to the study of cell biology in health and disease. I am interested in using Mass Spectrometry to characterize and understand the function of obscure PTMs, for example, ADP ribosylation in the context of DNA damage repair.

I find gastrointestinal epithelium fascinating because it is constantly renewing throughout our lives with a steady, controlled pace. I would like to investigate the mechanisms that govern the cell fate decisions behind this well-established cellular hierarchy. Moreover, understanding regional differences in homeostasis maintenance between small intestine and colon might give us a clue to why they have different susceptibility towards certain diseases, like cancer.

The genetic code plays a vital role in determining status of health or disease. However, the final expression patterning is directed, in part, by the epigenome, which can be remodeled based on lifestyle modifications such as nutrition, physical activity, and environmental exposures. In my work, I study the role of nutrition in altering epigenetic patterning, and the implications for phenotype and fitness.

Crucial events in development, e.g. fate decision, are not only directed by gene expression or soluble signals but also by mechanosignalling both from inside and outside the cell. I am drawn to understanding how these mechanical cues interact with other developmental guidance signals to form functional tissue from initially pluripotent cells.

Brown adipose tissue (BAT) is a thermogenic organ that has recently gained big relevance due to its potential for preventing obesity related metabolic disorders. I am particularly interested in the secreted factors released by BAT – the so called batokines – and how these cross-talk with other cells in the tissue like immune cells or neurons. Unravelling the functions of novel batokines will help to better understand how BAT regulates physiological processes and how this contributes to whole-body metabolism.

For something so small, a cell is remarkably complex. I’m fascinated by this complexity, which ranges over multiple levels that all interact with each other; from single electrons producing energy in our mitochondria, cells, tissues, and a body. The complexity itself and its components are too much for the human mind to study – or perhaps comprehend. For this reason, I choose data science approaches for methodology. I aim for unravelling a part of the biological complexity and serving the scientific community, so this knowledge can be used for more applicable science.

Choices have consequences — especially for immune cells. I am interested in “immunometabolism”, which studies how metabolic changes regulate immune cells’ phenotypes and effector functions. Such regulation of function occurs by manipulating the transcriptional and post-transcriptional mechanisms critical for activation.
