Prior to joining the ICR, Andreas worked in the sleep lab at the University of Vienna, applying similar image analysis techniques to the sleeping brain. His PhD, from the Medical University of Vienna, looked at imaging molecular mechanisms in cell biology.
Andreas appreciates the close interdisciplinary collaboration between researchers at the ICR. "We frequently share ideas in seminars, and other experts present their work," he says. "That's where you find inspiration for new collaborations, and new projects where you can also push further your own research, the reaches of your lab. It's a great way for a project to start."
Outside of work, Andreas says, he likes to do "active and extreme things", including running marathons, diving, and competition Latin dancing.
