Biography

I work as an Expert Scientist at Molecular Partners in the F&A group where we assess the stability of designed ankyrin repeat proteins (DARPins). I coordinate the projects that involve Mass Spectrometry.

Before I started at Molecular Partners I did a PhD at the ETH in the group of Prof. Dr. Markus Aebi under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Markus Kuenzler. I worked there on a novel class of Ribosomally synthesized and post-translationally modified peptides (RiPPs) from the beautiful fungus Omphalotus olearius which we named the borosins.
