Christine obtained her PhD from the IMP Vienna where she studied kinesin motors using in vitro reconstitution and structural biology approaches. Fascinated by ‘bottom-up’ approaches to rebuilt dynamic biological systems, she decided to move from motor proteins to studying the dynamic organization of membrane proteins. Her post-doctoral work at the IST Austria explored the biochemical and biophysical bases of cellular polarity in an in-vitro setup. After starting her editorial career as an Editor at Scientific Reports for 3 months, she joined Nature Communications in September 2017. Christine handles submissions on the biochemistry and structural biology of membrane proteins, computational structural biology, and general and single molecule biophysics. Christine is based in the Berlin office of Springer Nature.
