I did my undergraduate studies in Rostock (Medical Biotechnology) and Göttingen (Molecular Medicine), Germany. I started working in the group of Anna Smed Sörensen in 2014 for a Master´s thesis project examining the "Intracellular trafficking of influenza A virus in human dendritic cells". I continued working as a research assistant and registered as a PhD in November 2015. During my PhD studies I am investigating human mononuclear phagocytes in the respiratory system during steady-state and inflammatory conditions.
