An MD-PhD graduate and board-certified pediatrician from Switzerland, I am a member of the pediatric hematology/oncology fellowship program in Seattle.
I am interested in how cell fate is regulated, both in normal physiology as well as in different disease states. I previously worked in the fields of telomere biology (Claus Azzalin, ETH Zürich) and hematopoietic stem cells (Andreas Trumpp, EPF Lausanne, now at DKFZ Heidelberg). My current research focuses on the application of single-cell genomics and computational biology to a variety of cellular transitions (with a particular focus on B-cell development), aiming at reconstructing trajectories of single cells and identifying key regulators of cellular fate decisions.
I spend most of my free time exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest with my lovely family.
