During my studies at the University of Bremen I explored the role of SUMOylation in the regulation of flower organ formation in the lab of Prof. Annette Becker (now University of Giessen). I then moved to New Zealand, where I continued to work in the field of plant genetics. For my PhD project I adapted an inducible knock-out system to study the function of the major growth regulator Target of Rapamycin (TOR) at AgResearch, Palmerston North under the supervision of Paul Dijkwel (Massey University) and Bruce Veit. 

Since 2015 I am a member of the Rainey lab and involved in several ongoing projects – most notably, a longterm evolution experiment in which we’re applying an artificial life cycle to primitive collectives of Pseudomonas fluorescens SBW25 to explore constitutive conditions for the evolution of multicellular life.
I am also laboratory manager and central contact person for all matters regarding our department.
