Background and activities

I studied biomolecular engineering and took part on a wide variety of projects during that time, from confocal fluorescent laser scanning microscopy to enzyme engineering. Now I am doing a PhD with a focus on synthetic promotors. We strive to employ a system that leads to working promoters in any organism for any gene of interest. As a follow up, we hope to analyze the sequences with the potential of identifying new motifs. For this, I am currently working with E. coli, P. putida, C. glutamicus and S. cerevisiae; Chlamydomonas reinhardtii and a human cell line remain.
