Visiting Student Research Collaborator
Thomas grew up in rural Germany and studied Physics at the University of Göttingen. Throughout his studies, he spent some time at Monash University, Australia, and Tohoku University, Japan, working on microfluidics and lipid vesicles. He received his Master’s degree with a thesis on microbial propulsion at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization, Göttingen, in 2018. Thomas joined the Soft and Living Materials (not Soft Living Matter but close) Group of Eric Dufresne at ETH Zurich as a PhD student later that year to study the impact of a viscoelastic mesh on the formation and growth of protein droplets. To this end, he joined the Brangwynne Lab as a visiting student research collaborator to join forces. In his free time he likes to travel and enjoy the outdoors.
