I am an EMBO and HFSP awarded postdoctoral fellow at the FMP in Berlin.
After finishing my Ph.D., I decided to embark on a new journey and switched fields from plant biotechnology to neurobiology.
Currently, I try to deepen our knowledge concerning the function of different LC3 isoforms in neurons through knock-in strategies and combining imaging with functional readouts.
During my Ph.D., I focused on basic research in the field of plant endocytosis. My main project elucidated the TPLATE protein complex which plays a major role in regulating endocytosis; the uptake of proteins from the plasma membrane. In vitro and in vivo approaches were combined to understand the form and function of this enigmatic complex.
Proteomic characterization of isolated Arabidopsis clathrin-coated vesicles reveals evolutionarily conserved and plant-specific components.
