As an associate of the Frankfurt Center for Advanced Light Microscopy (FCAM) and the CMP-Mikroskopiezentrum I am in charge of several duties and responsibilities, for instance, to train users on the instruments before they start to use them, to take technical care of the equipment, to organize demos, and to carry out administrative duties concerning the facilities.

The scope of my work is mainly due to the aims of the facilities mentioned above, that is to enhance the quality of research projects in the life sciences and related disciplines, to increase the efficiency of the time scientists have to spend to become familiar with advanced microscope techniques and to help them to find the best method available in both facilities to solve their scientific questions.
