Melanie is a postdoc at Harvard University, where she is creating and munching data from biological experiments. Most of the time she she is trying to figure out what yeast cells have done while growing on a Petri dish. It turns out that automated data analysis with Matlab and Python can help a lot in this process! Before moving to Harvard University, Melanie obtained a PhD in Physics from the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Potsdam, Germany, where she used mathematical modeling, computer simulations and analysis of experimental data to understand how molecular motors transport cargoes in cells.
