Biography: I was born and raised in Mainz, Germany. I studied Chemistry at the Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz and received my diploma in 2014 under the supervision of Professor Dr. Till Opatz and in a collaboration with the Sanofi-Aventis Deutschland GmbH. Since July 2014, I have been a PhD student in the research group of Professor Opatz and my research is focused primarily on the synthesis and application of albumin binders. In July 2017, I joined Eric Anslyn's group as a PhD exchange student working on boronic acid functionalized albumin binders.
