About me

I am a Neuroscientist by training and by a mindset and a product manager and community builder by day. After spending 10 years in molecular biology and neuroscience research, I am now applying my analytical skills and the knowledge of cognitive biases in humans to help companies create great products.

While loving my job, I was always a so-called ""scanner"" - a person who “refuses to choose” and within the last years got engaged in several side-projects: from founding English-speaking science communication scene in Munich and running 3 scicomm organizations there in 2015-2021, to creating a no-code online school for academics to establishing a mentoring program for Russian-speaking students and publishing a podcast. If you are also this kind of person, I am happy to support you and talk about the time, project and team management challenges you probably have :)

I am happy to talk about anything you might find interesting in my profile and experience - neurobiology knowledge, leading and growing a (volunteer) team, no-code products, breaking into Product with a non-tech background and how to find your tribe and network if you're an introvert in a foreign country.
