Benjamin obtained his M.Sc. in Biophysics from the Technical University of Kaiserslautern in Germany. For his thesis, he studied the interaction of cytoskeletal proteins at MIT, Cambridge (US). With the acquired knowledge of the interface between biology and physics he started his PhD at the Technical University of Munich developing high precision optical measurement instruments and investigating the fundamental working principles of enzymes. During his PhD he gained extensive experience in solving complex and interdisciplinary problems in technological development.
Benjamin first joined Lunaphore as Post-Doc in September 2016, working in collaboration with the EPFL to support the development of new applications. He is now a full-time Enabling Technologies Engineer at Lunaphore and is responsible for the development and testing of new prototypes and assays.
