Welcome to my website!
I am a Fulbright student currently finishing my Ph.D. with the Fischell Department of Bioengineering at the University of Maryland, College Park.
After growing up in a small town in Austria, I received my Diplomingenieur in biophysics, with a focus on nanoscience and -technology, from the Johannes Kepler University in Linz. My thesis focused on Dilute Magnetic Semiconductors, working with the n-core group and the Advanced Semiconductor Research group at Berkeley.
I joined the MEMS Sensors and Actuators Laboratory (MSAL) in Spring 2012. Here, I am applying my interdisciplinary background as part of the MiND (Microsystems development for Neuropsychiatric Disorders) effort, developing a BioMEMS device utilizing biomaterial-based electrochemical sensing and impedance cytometry to enable drug treatment planning and monitoring.
