Felix Bäuerle received his bachelor’s degree at Ulm University in Physics in 2012. After taking a yearlong detour into the industry to work on the design of automated test benches, he was drawn into biophysical studies upon return for his master’s degree in Ulm. His master’s thesis prepared both at the Institute of Experimental Physics in Ulm, Germany, and at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel, focused on imaging enzyme kinetics in living cells and integration of cell traction force microscopy into microfabricated organs-on-a-chip under the supervision of Prof. Kay-Eberhard Gottschalk and Prof. Gideon Schreiber. Now his research interest is driven by the cunning self-organizing abilities of Physarum polycephalum. After completing his Ph.D., Felix became manager at PHYWE in Göttingen.
