A current CV is available for download (.pdf). Briefly,
I am a German scientist, born in
Garmisch-Partenkirchen and have lived in
I graduated in Biology (Plant Physiology, Genetics, Biochemistry) from the Eberhard-Karls-University Tübingen, wrote an honours thesis at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California and was, until recently, a scientist in Detlef Weigel's laboratory at the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology in Tübingen. In 2011, I was also a Fellow in Freshwater Sciences in part time at the Leibniz Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB) in Berlin, working with Michael Monaghan and Hans-Peter Grossart towards an inventory of fungi in fresh water. Recently, I joined the group of Justin Borevitz at The Australian National University in Canberra. We do 2nd-generation-sequencing-enabled conservation genetics and prebreeding.
Besides learning new things every day, my interests include life, science, hiking, travel, skiing and flying. In the time to come I will explore Australia by all means of transport available to me.
