Christian Westendorf

azam I studied biology at the University of Rostock in Germany from 1999 to 2006. After finishing my Diploma thesis on Quorum sensing regulation in plant root associated bacteria, I joined the department of Eberhard Bodenschatz at the Max-Planck-Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organisation as a Ph.D student. The major topics were the dynamics of the actin cytoskeleton in migrating and stimulated amoeboid cells. I graduated in physics at the Georg-August University Goettingen in 2012 and went for my first PostDoc to the Institue for Plant Sciences at the University of Graz in Austria, where I studied the network dynamics of different growing plasmodial slime molds. I rejoined the group of Eberhard Bodenschatz in late 2015 to work on the biofluiddynamics of the cilia driven flow in the third ventricle of the mammalian brain and furthermore to work on quantitative biology in Dictyostelium discoideum. Oh, and I am also in charge of the microscope facility of our department.
