Olivia Pfeil-GardinerPhD Student & PhD Student Representative
I am a PhD student in Bonnie Murphy’s group. Previously, I studied Physics in Berlin (Free University) and in Frankfurt (Goethe University). During the research for my master’s thesis in the group of Werner Kühlbrandt, I fell in love with the elegant and powerful technique of cryoEM, becoming fascinated by how something so elemental to physics as accelerating, scattering, and detecting electrons can give us detailed visual information – and thereby knowledge – of some of the most intricate and relevant biological processes. I am especially interested in method development and image processing but really just enjoy any work around these beautiful microscopes.
