Curriculum Vitae

After graduating from the Oslo International School, Oslo, Norway, Lea Schuh studied mathematics in her bachelor's and master's at the Technical University of Munich (October 2013 - November 2018). For her master's thesis, she joined the lab of Arjun Raj, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, USA, for six months (April 2018 - October 2018). There she developed a mathematical model to investigate rare, correlated high-gene expression states as observed in pre-resistant melanoma cells. In December 2018, she then started her PhD at the Institute of Computational Biology, Helmholtz Zentrum München, in the group of Dr. Carsten Marr, Quantitative Single Cell Dynamics. During her PhD, she will be working on single-cell properties extracted from lineage tree data.
