Brief bio: Always being fascinated by computers and numbers I worked on numerous interdisciplinary projects after studying computer science. During my PhD I developed computer models of the brain. After, I changed the field to plant biology where I contributed to different projects with computational models and image processing/quantification using the open-source platform MorphoGraphX.
