I always had an interest in all natural sciences, so I obtained a combined Bachelor's degree in chemistry and biochemistry from LMU Munich. I pursued a master’s degree at the same university, with additional internships in the labs of Prof. Roland Beckmann (LMU Munich) in the area of Cryo-EM and Prof. Dirk Trauner (NYU) in natural product synthesis.
For my Master thesis I had the opportunity to work on a combined total synthesis and methodology project with Prof. Varinder Aggarwal in Bristol.
As a 1st year PhD student I hope to apply my experience to the field of biopolymer synthesis combined with flow-chemistry.
Outside of chemistry I enjoy sports, especially bouldering and cycling. Furthermore, I’m always up to try new foods, sometimes I’m even brave enough to eat my own.
