Born in 1993, Heilbronn (Germany)
|I was born and raised in Heilbronn, a city in the north of Stuttgart. After finishing my Abitur (Germany A Level) in 2012, I directly started my studies of pure chemistry at the KIT and therefore moved to Karlsruhe. As I became more and more curious about polymer chemistry throughout my studies, I joined the Macroarc research group for my Bachelor Thesis in 2015 which was all about the synthesis of a photoresist. I really enjoyed the work and the idea of synthesizing applicable materials with a wide range of possible properties. In my spare time I like doing different kinds of sports, playing the piano, listening to music and meeting friends and my family.|
