iGEM 2006 ... Isn't it exciting to be one of the first students at your university that work on a project that has never been done before? Well, I think it is ... and that's why I am here !
I am an undergraduate student at Imperial College London and just completed my 2nd year in Biomedical Engineering. I grew up in Germany, in a small town (well, compared to London nearly every town is tiny...), finished my school education there and then decided to go to university here in London. Regarding the latter, I can only admit, it has been an invaluable experience!
Interests & Hobbies
"Music is a language everyone knows how to speak - it opens up a whole new world" ... From very young, I have been devoted to music - I enjoy listening to all kinds of music. Playing the violin is one of my loved hobbies and so I have played in duos, chamber music an am currently playing in the orchestra.
Having been in swimming teams for a long time - I have fun doing all kinds of sports. Apart from swimming, this includes going to the (newly openend!) gym, playing badminton ... and not to forget skiing (only during holidays though) !!!
Moreover, I love travelling - getting to know other countries and cultures. And I am very lucky to have the chance to visit so many countries not only in Europe but also America, Asia and Africa. Every time, I am amazed to learn something new!
