Research interests

My main research focus lies on the connection between brain tumors and neurodegeneration as well as the connectivity with cellular senescence. I am mainly working on gliomas like glioblastoma, astrocytoma and oligodendroglioma. The title of my PhD thesis is called: "Decoding cellular senescence in glioblastoma".

Techniques, methods & infrastructure

  • Immunhistochemistry and digital pathology
  • single-cell RNA Sequencing
