Buhmann, Julia

Julia Buhmann is currently a PostDoc at the Institute of Neuroinformatics in Zurich. She did her PhD both in the Lab of Jan Funke at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Janelia Research Campus and in the lab of Matthew Cook (ETH Zurich). During her PhD, she developed AI-based algorithms for the detection of microtubules and synapses in Electron Microscopy Datasets of brain tissue. Together with the Funke Lab, she successfully overcame the challenges of processing a 100 TB image dataset resulting in synaptic partner predictions for the first whole-brain EM dataset of the fruit fly (FAFB).
