Frederike was a postdoc in the lab from 2009-2012, after having obtained her PhD in crustaceam embryology under the direction of Gerhard Scholz at the Humboldt University of Berlin. Frederike established and published a complete cell lineage from the earliest stages through to gastrulation of the amphipod crustacean Parhyale hawaiensis, an important model organism in our lab. She also contributed to the Parhyale transcriptome, and to our ongoing work on the regenerative properties and developmental potential of early cleavage blastomeres in Parhyale. Frederike went on to pursue a postdoc in the Averof lab at the Institut de Genomique Fonctionnelle de Lyon (IGFL) in Lyon, France.

She is currently an artisanal cheese maker in the Clermont-Ferrand area of France.
