Bachelor Thesis: Transcript mapping in the P.falciparum apicoplast, Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Chris Howe, Department of Biochemistry, University of Cambridge, UK.
I am interested in applying mathematical concepts, in particular from pure mathematics, to gain insights in biological processes and problems. During my MSc dissertation I focussed on applying various tools from Computational Topology to functional brain networks as well as the output of a mathematical model to investigate what information can be gained from using these tools in such contexts.
Programming: Matlab, C++ (basics), C (basics), Python (basics).
Experience with finite element methods, image colourisation, computational topology and various mathematical modelling techniques.
Lab skills: Standard Methods in Molecular Biology/Biochemistry (PCR, Cloning, DNA/RNA extraction and purification, cell culture, Protein purification, mass spectrometry, Western blots etc.), RNA circularisation (used for transcript mapping), experience with P.falciparum cell cultures.
Language skills: German and Czech (Bilingual), English (Level C2), French and Italian (Swiss school level), Latin (basic knowledge).
Teaching Assistant, Mathematical Institute, University of Bern, Switzerland, Courses: Linear Algebra I&II (marking problem sheets, demonstrating), 2012 - 2013.
