Hi, my name is Rieke Stock. I studied physics in Hamburg and went to Berlin for my diploma thesis in Neuroscience. After a short break I decided to start my PhD in December 2013 in this group.

My research is focused on the membrane protein Halorhodopsin, a light-driven chloride pump. I am in particular interested in the L2 intermediate of its photocycle. I use Flash Photolysis and FTIR spectroscopy to learn more about this intermediate. This information will be used to investigate its structure at the LCLS in Stanford.
