Research interest

I have spent the last three years working with Drosophila melanogaster, first as a M.Sc. student at the University of Chicago, USA, and then as a research assistant at the Institute of Population Genetics at the Vetmeduni Vienna, Austria. During my stay in Chicago I got interested in the development of Drosophila egg chambers and especially in ovarian polar cells and their role in actin polarization. In March 2013 I have joined the Flatt lab in Lausanne, where I am currently working as a lab manager and research assistant. Together with others in the lab, I am also currently involved in a project examining the role of the couch potato gene in affecting adult endocrine physiology and life history in D. melanogaster.
