How to make the planet we live on, a better place? This is the main driver behind the majority of my scientific interests. I wrote my bachelor thesis about bioremediation and now in my master’s program I developed a big interest for environmental microbiome research and especially innovative applications of it.
In my time off, I am a huge nerd when it comes to culinary experiments which can take on several days or weeks, depending on if I cook ramen, ferment kimchi or produce vinegar. I love to explore other countries and cultures, especially when there are not many other tourists around and they have a special cuisine. I really enjoy climbing, hiking and just being out in nature. I am also the proud owner of a guitar and a mandolin which I pretend playing from time to time, but only for my own amusement.
