About me

I’m a Master student in Complex System Chemistry. I’m interested in the processes at the beginning of life, and I believe an interdisciplinary approach is central to understanding complex systems. I joined the lab for a Master internship, fascinated by the development of artificial cells with life-like properties. My project involves DNA/RNA origami to functionalize giant unilamellar lipid vesicles (GUVs). In my free time, I like to work with the PC, 3D print and watch theatre plays and movies.
