      I create simulations of biological cells interact with each other (e.g. cancer cells). I create algorithms were at every time-step (every loop of the algorithm) each cell can move/divide/die/mutate or interact with other cells. I then use these algorithms to investigate different settings (e.g. what if cancer cells moved faster/slower?)

      I create algorithms which are helping a robot to grasp any object in different ways irrespective of its geometry or physical properties.
