Postdoctoral Researcher

Education M.Sc. in Microbiology/Immunology (University of Berne, Switzerland, 2011)
Ph.D. in Virology/Immunology (University of Zurich, Switzerland, 2017)

Scientific Interest and Avenues for Collaboration My main interest is the application of high-dimensional flow cytometry with up to 28 colors in the context of large human immunophenotyping cohort studies with the goal to better understand mechanisms of immune homeostasis, vaccine responses, and human diseases. My current research project integrates genome-wide association studies with high-dimensional flow cytometry aiming to reveal genetic and environmental factors associated with immune homeostasis and dysfunction. This includes many facets of flow cytometry such as the development of high-dimensional flow cytometry staining panels, optimization of staining protocols, instrumentation, and data analysis. In addition, I have a general interest in flow cytometry and other single-cell technologies as well high-dimensional data analysis.
