Coupling vs. Noise: Synchrony Dynamics in the Vertebrate Segmentation Clock

Ingmar Riedel-Kruse

Postdoctoral Fellow, California Institute of Technology.

Ingmar Riedel-KruseIngmar obtained his Diplom in theoretical solid-state physics. For his PhD he joined Jonathon Howard (Max Planck Institute Cell Biology / Genetics, Dresden) to study collective phenomena of molecular motors and cells, i.e., how sperm tails work. Then he did two postdocs: One in developmental biology with Andrew Oates (also Max Planck) on synchronized genetic oscillators and one in systems neuroscience with Gilles Laurent (Caltech) on insect olfaction. He will start his own lab this fall.
