I´m a Master thesis student at the MSNZ in Würzburg (AG Burger). In my thesis I currently try to decipher the location of Double-strand breaks in paraspeckle deficient cells by using BLISS sequencing. Before my excursion into the field of DNA damage repair and RNA research, I did my Master studies (Biochemistry) at the University of Würzburg with a focus in Infection biology and Virology. During an internship at the Överby lab at the University of Umeå (Sweden) working on an RNA virus, I first came in contact with RNA research and found my liking for it. Before that I did my Bachelor studies at the University of Jena and a biotechnical training at the School of life Science Hamburg. I´m a member and volunteer of the jGBM (youth organization German society of biochemistry and molecular biology) and in my free time I have co-organized Scientific symposia in the past.
I am a PhD student in the lab of Stefan Jakobs at the MPI for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen, Germany. My interests include the crosstalk between mitochondrial function and ultrastructure, microscopy and, generally, the spatial organisation of the cell, especially of membranes. Additionally, I am a founding member and spokesperson of the Göttingen local group of the junior-GBM.
