Personal profile


I obtained my Bachelor and Master in Germany at the Leibniz University of Hanover where my research was focused on plant mitochondrial metabolism and the composition of the electron transport chain. I then went on to Perth to undertake my PhD studies at the University of Western Australia (UWA) with a focus of plant mitochondrial stress response and stress signalling. I obtained my PhD in the beginning of 2018 and shortly after joined the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) as a postdoctoral fellow in the Molecular Plant Pathology and Crop Genomics Laboratory based in Perth. I worked on the development of microbe assisted crop protection technologies and biofungicides. I joined UWA again in late 2021 as a Research Scientist in the School of Molecular Sciences and currently focus my research on protein synthesis in wheat and sustainable agriculture practices.
