My research interests cover proteins and amino acids’ interaction with substrates such as graphene

Furthermore I am involved in projects on the protein Cryptochrome, in more speicfic I  am interested in the light interaction of the FAD co-factor and the molecular dynamics of Cryptochromes as well as their mutations.


I was co-organiser of the international student competition PLANCKS 2019
