2011-2015 Bachelor of Science in Physics at Heidelberg University 

2015-2018 Master of Science in Physics at Heidelberg University

2013 Research internship at the Universidad de Concepción, Chile (quantum information)

PhD project: Spin relaxation in ErCry4

Goal: Creating a computational model of spin relaxation in cryptochrome proteins which links the different spatial scales of the electron spin and its relaxation channels (interactions of atoms/radical pair, proteins, protein complexes).

Part of the SFB 1372 Sig05 "Structural and dynamical traits of avian cryptochromes"

Other interests: Spin relaxation in other sytems (e.g. a lipid bilayer)
