Proteomics Genomics Plant Science Systems Biology Genome-editing CRISPR-Cas9 Applied Mass-Spectrometry Long-read DNA Sequencing


I'm a systems & synthetic biologist by training and completed my PhD in Plant Biotechnology at ETH Zurich. I'm interested in studying how complex biological systems work and interact and want to try and apply this knowledge to solve global problems using new biotechnology. I am also a graduate of the Zurich-Basel Plant Science Center’s PhD program in Science & Policy and strive to include aspects of policy and ethics in my science.


I utilize advanced mass-spectrometry based proteomics techniques in order to study how plant cells and molecular systems respond to changing environments. This research takes place in the context of climate change and future challenges in agriculture.
