i am an open, flexible, international PhD Candidate in Biomedical Sciences and looking for new challenges. as a science professional i am trained in Data Analysis and the identification of problems. finding solid and innovative solutions is my passion. my broad Research experience underlines my curiosity for complex tasks and the ability to gather new knowledge quickly. i am ambitious and experienced in the communicating and presenting obtained results, which led to several scientific Publications and awards during my phd period. Teamwork has always been part of my professional and private life, as Research is depended on close collaboration and similar to sports depending on a functioning project team. i was able to gain initial Leadership experience while working as handball Trainer and supervising/Teaching undergraduate students. my colleagues value my loyalty, stability, organizing skills and humoristic nature.
