Curriculum Vitae

since 2014
PhD Student in the Computational Biochemistry Group at the ICS-6: Structural Biochemistry, Forschungszentrum Jülich.

Master Internship and Thesis in the Computational Biochemistry Group at the ICS-6, Forschungszentrum Jülich. Thesis title: Elucidating the structure and dynamics of a fusion protein consisting of a lipase and a citrate binding domain by molecular dynamics simulations.

2011 - 2013
Master of Science in Simulation Sciences, German Research School for Simulation Sciences, RWTH Aachen, Germany. Interdisciplinary programme in mathematics, computer science, engineering and the natural sciences. My main focus is on simulation methods and applications in physics and biophyics.
