Joined the lab: April 2016
Background and Current Projects: I studied Biology at the University of Münster and received my M.Sc. in 2012. After a research internship in the group of Nathan Lawson at the UMass Medical School in Worcester during the summer of 2011, I did my Master thesis in the lab of Andy Oates at the MPI-CBG in Dresden where I was working on genetic oscillators and transcription factor stability. During my PhD in the group of Michael Lammers at University of Cologne I studied post-translational lysine-acetylation and the enzymes regulating this protein modification. I joined the Hollfelder group in April 2016 and my project focuses on proteases for therapeutic applications.
Interests: I enjoy producing music on my computer and to go running.
