MESSAGE
I was raised in Oberursel, close to the city of Frankfut/Main. After my Abitur, I moved to Marburg to study Chemistry at the Philipps-University. In 2010, I received my B.Sc. and in 2012 I completed my M.Sc. in the working group of Prof. Seema Agarwal. To gain further professional expertise and to experience a different country, I worked for 6 months at the Tufts University (Medford, MA, USA) as a research scientist and afterwards travelled through North America.  For the next 6 months, I worked pro bono at the Bad Homburger Tafel e.V. I love playing the electrical guitar and I enjoy travelling as well as all kind of endurance sports.
