Personal statement:

I have been working in the field of malignant lymphoma for the past 6 years. For the last 4 years I especially focused on histopathological aspects of lymphomas while I was working with Andreas Rosenwald in the Reference Centre for Lymph node and Hematopathology in Wuerzburg, Germany. Recently I received the board certification in surgical pathology. Joining the Steidl lab enables me to focus on lymphoma biology and molecular genetics with the goal to elucidate prognostic markers in Hodgkin lymphoma and PMBCL.
