Simply speaking, we work hard, play hard. We enthusiastically pursue research & fun inside and outside the lab. We organize group activities throughout the year. (Participation is voluntary.) If you are a highly motivated student who enjoys working in a team of interdisciplinary researchers and also loves to participate in diverse social activities, you will do well in our group.
