During my masters at ETH Zürich, for about two years, I worked as a student research assistant in the group of Bruno Weber - the Experimental Imaging & Neuroenergetics group at the Institute of Pharmacology and Toxicology at the UZH. It was my first foray into neuroscience, and since then my appreciation for the field, and my interest in it, only grew.

I am absolutely fascinated by the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying complex human behavioral patterns and emotional states. My current work does not leave time to delve into this area deeper, but I hope to be able to do so again in the future.
