**Enes Senel** _PhD Student in (Computational) Biology_ _Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine, Germany_ _enes.senel@mdc-berlin.de_ ![ ](./photo.jpg width="150px" align=left)Hey, I'm Enes. I am a PhD student at the MDC Berlin and I strive to improve my skills as a researcher-to-be. My research interests are spatial transcriptomics, cellular dynamics and computational modelling. I am interested in using computational techniques to investigate molecular mechanisms that make functioning cellular processes possible. **Recent News:** * _October 2019_: I will be joining [Nikolaus Rajewsky's group at the MDC Berlin](https://www.mdc-berlin.de/n-rajewsky) to work with Nikos Karaiskos on spatial transcriptomics! 🎉 * _December 2018_: [New publication on needle tip tracking](https://doi.org/10.1016/j.mechatronics.2018.12.002) is now published at mechatronics! * _May 2018_: I will be joining [Julijana Gjorgjieva's group at Max Planck Institute for Brain Research](https://brain.mpg.de/research/computation-in-neural-circuits-group.html) in Frankfurt for my thesis! 🎉 You can view my [Google Scholar page](https://scholar.google.de/citations?user=1Nas6ZQAAAAJ&hl=en&oi=ao), [resume](./resume.pdf) and [twitter](https://twitter.com/nssenel).
