About me

I am a neuroscientist specialized in research on circadian rhythms, or so called "chronobiology", which is a research field that describes how daily fluctuations in sleep-wakefulness, social behavior, hormonal release, immune system mechanims and other bodily functions are controlled by a "body clock". I am also an experienced university teacher in neuroscience, histology and gross anatomy and a dedicated student supervisor. I frequently give public lectures about our body clock system and sleep and its relation to diseases.

My current location is the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing, www.age.mpg.de, Cologne, Germany, where I work as the institute Scientific Coordinator. My work involves institute management and strategic planning; as well as teaching and mentoring junior scientists. 

I am also affiliated as associate professor (docent) with Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden, where I studied and worked as a research group leader for many years.  I am alumna from University of Virginia in Charlottesville, where I previously worked as postdoctoral fellow in Gene Block's laboratory at the Center for Biology of Timing.
