In my doctoral project I investigated the signaling from neurons with mixed potential signals (consisting of graded potential shifts and spikes) to another spiking neuron. The model system used was the visual system of the blowfly Calliphora vicina.

The work was done at Bielefeld University, department of Neurobiology. The work was supervised by Jun.-Prof. Dr. Rafael Kurtz.
My diploma thesis was done in the field of theoretical biology. I developed and implemented a software model simulation of the walking behaviour of the stick insect ( Carausius morosus).
A summary (one A4 page German) is available here.
The work was done at Bielefeld University, department of biological cybernetics. The work was supervised by Prof. Dr. Holk Cruse.
During a project work at University Münster I established my own biochemical benchmark to quantify the vitality of cell suspension cultures of the chick pea (Cicer arietinum L.). The method is on based photometric measurment of the Protease activity after protein concentration homologation of the probes.
This work was done at University Münster, Institute of Plant Biochemistry and Biotechnology and was supervised by Dr. Andreas Pachten.
