About me

As a master student in the Matter to Life program, I am fascinated by the way nature manages to turn a “bag full of molecules” into something living and curious if we could do something similar. Pursuing this goal, I am happy to work in Kerstin’s group and will be working on azobenzene-modified DNA origami. In my free time, I enjoy climbing as much as woodworking and being outdoors.
