Malthe Skytte Nordentoft

Visitor PhD Student

Malthe studied physics at the University of Copenhagen and is now a PhD fellow at the Bio-complexity group at the Niels Bohr institute in Denmark. He is mainly interested in the appliance of dynamical systems theory on different subjects spanning bicycle traffic to neurons. As a visitor in the Granada lab he is working on several projects combining theory and experiment.

Sofia Peso

Master Student

Sofia studied Biology at the Complutense University of Madrid and is currently finishing her Master’s in Biophysics at the Autónoma University of Madrid. Her project in the lab involves understanding the role of cyclic non-genetic cellular states in determining individual cellular responses.

Carolin Ector

PhD Student

Carolin studied Biology at the Julius-Maximilians University of Würzburg and did her Masters in Molecular Life Science at the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin. Her project focuses on understanding how cell-intrinsic factors regulate the treatment response in triple negative breast cancer.
