Bio

Several internships in the field of plant pathology made me excited for this subject and subsequently made me choose molecular plant biology as a specialization in my bachelors degree. Following work on both the plant/host as well as the pathogen I got excited to work towards crop improvement.

Other research interest includes biorefinery, durability food quality & safety and new biotechnical applications such as vertical farming.
