About me

  • Originally, I am a chemist and obtained my Master of Science in Chemistry in
    2016 at the Philipps University Marburg in Germany. In 2017 I then joined the
    lab of Peter Kolb at the Institute of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Philipps
    University Marburg, to pursue a PhD. During my work I was mainly (but not
    exclusively) focusing on class A G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) and
    using tools such as Molecular Docking to predict novel ligands with certain
    properties for these receptors. In January 2021 I successfully defended my
    PhD (Dr. rer. nat.). In September 2021 I joined the lab of Gunnar Schulte as
    a postdoctoral researcher to work with the exciting class F GPCRs.


  • I am excited about the structural details of GPCR signalling, especially
    ligand-receptor interactions but also effector-receptor interactions. During
    my work I mainly employ computational tools such as Molecular Docking and
    Molecular Dynamics Simulations. However, I am also happy to go to the wet lab
    and join the pharmacological characterisation of any hypotheses.
