Background and activities

Research interests

My main research interests are RNA epitranscriptomics and DNA epigenetics that orchestrate fundamental processes like stress response and memory formation. Throughout my PhD and post doctoral period I developed and refined advanced mass spectrometry based methods for the characterization of functional RNA and DNA modifications. Today these methods are incorporated into the analytical pipeline of the Proteomics and Modomics Experimental Core facility (PROMEC) and are utilized by multiple research groups both nationally and worldwide.
