PhD (Chemistry), MRes, BA
Languages: German, English, French
Patent prosecution and oppositions before the European Patent Office (EPO) as well as drafting new patent applications. Broad technical expertise across the fields of biotechnology and organic chemistry, especially in nucleic acid-based technologies, e.g. DNA nanotechnology, RNAi, antisense, nucleic acid modifications.
Numerous first- and co-author publications in scientific journals e.g. Journal of the American Chemical Society, Angewandte Chemie und Nature Protocols.
Obtained a bachelor’s degree in chemistry with specialisation in organic and biological chemistry at the University of Cambridge (2012-2015) followed by an MRes at University College London (2015-2016). Then, attained a Doctorate at University College London in chemical biology with a focus on DNA nanotechnology (2016-2020). Specifically, the design of DNA nanopores and their use, for example in targeted drug delivery. Further research in the development and synthesis of photo-responsive protecting groups and their applications, e.g. for targeted, epigenetic modulation of DNA. With HOFFMANN EITLE since 2020.
