My name is Maria. I studied Biophysics at the University of Kaiserslautern, Germany. I also dived into moleculear disease diagnostics during an exchange year at the University of Southern Denmark. For my Diploma thesis work on multicolor STED microscopy, I joined the lab of Stefan Hell at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen. I staid there for my PhD, trying to establish STED imaging of FRET pairs. After completing my PhD, I joined the company PicoQuant in Berlin as application specialist for time-resolved confocal microscopy. After 4 years, I changed departments and now work as scientific content creator at PicoQuant. Besides that, I teach a lecture on light microscopy at the HTW Berlin.
