I am a cell biologist interested in revealing the organizing principles of cells and tissues.

I am currently working is on the self-organization of neural tube organoids with a focus on organ size control and neurogenesis. I work among the groups of Elly Tanaka (CRTD), Jan Brugues (MPI-CBG/MPI-PKS), and Frank J├╝licher (MPI-PKS).

Mouse embryonic stem cells self-organize into neural tube organoids in a synthetic 3D environment.
