Johannes (Yogi), Research Group Leader
Hometown: Chur, Switzerland

What are you working on?
I am interested in what makes organisms different from non-living systems, and how we can understand the peculiar structure and form of living beings. It is not the what organisms are made of that makes them different. It is how these materials are organized by processes that constantly convert them in complex and intertwined ways to keep the organism active and alive.

Have you always wanted to be a scientist?
Not quite. I am the first scientist in my family. My interest in science awoke during my high school years. Thus: early on, but not always!

Why did you choose science/your discipline?
I chose to study biology because I could not really decide which branch of science interested me most. The biology curriculum included some chemistry, physics, and geology as well, so I went for that.

What is science for you?
Science consists of a collection of rigorous methods, agreed upon by scientists, to study reality. It involves a critical selection process by which ideas that do not match reality are amended or (ultimately) discarded.

What drives/motivates you?
I want to understand! Especially my particular place in the universe. I would like to be a natural philosopher like they existed before we fragmented our research communities and ourselves into narrow intellectual habitats.

It’s been a while since I last posted. I had to step away from one endeavor to finish another and I’m happy to say that I officially moved from doctoral student to Dr. last week. Many thanks to the family and friends who have been a consistent support! And thank you to @shorecakesupply for turning my sketch into a cookie cutter on such short notice during the holiday season! #phinished #notthatkindofdoctor #phd #phdlife #phdnyc #nyu #nyusteinhardt
