M.Sc. Aoife Murnin
I studied for my Bachelor of Physics in Queens University, Belfast, writing my final project on the activity of the solar chromosphere. After moving to Berlin to study for a Msc, my attention shifted from extremely large scale phenomena to the molecular scale of biophysical mechanisms.
I wrote my Master thesis in AG Heberle, studying a coupled photo lipid and mechanosensor protein using SEIRAS.
I'm currently working under the Unified Systems in Catalysis (UniSysCat) project framework, more specifically in project E: Signal-Controlled Multicomponent Catalysis. Simply put, we hope to adapt small biophysical systems to incorporate a light trigger.
