My name is Saskia Haupt (she/her) and I'm a mathematical oncologist and PhD candidate at Heidelberg University. I am passionate about modeling cancer evolution in Lynch syndrome, the most common inherited colorectal cancer predisposition syndrome.
After my studies in mathematics at Heidelberg University (2012–2017) with focus on numerical analysis and medical applications, I joined the Engineering Mathematics and Computing Lab (EMCL) directed by Prof. Dr. Vincent Heuveline as a PhD student. Further, I'm a guest researcher at the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS).
Since 2020, I complement my research activities around mathematical oncology with part-time studies in Biostatistics at Heidelberg University.
In my free time, I love working in the creative field, decorating, taking photos of all the small structures occurring in nature while hiking with my better half.
