Sebastian Fürthauer, Ph.D.

Flatiron Research Fellow, Biophysical Modeling, CCB, Flatiron Institute

Sebastian Fürthauer joined the Center for Computational Biology in June 2016. Fürthauer is interested in the physics of cellular scale processes, such as cell division and cell motility and their role in developmental biology. After earning his Ph.D. at the Max Planck Institute for Physics of Complex Systems and the Max Planck Institute for Cellular Biology and Genetics, in Dresden, Germany, he did research at the Tata Centre for Interdisciplinary Sciences in Hyderabad, India, the Courant Institute at New York University and Harvard University. His current work focuses on understanding the role of self-organized processes in the microtubule cytoskeleton of cells, which enable the segregation of chromosomes during cell division.
