Who am I?
I have my foundation in plant biochemistry and plant biotechnology with a strong focus on the development of 'value added plants' by genetic engineering. Since I moved to Hohenheim I did a lot of teaching and developed a strong interest in synthetic biology. Since 2004 I am member of the evaluation panel for Synthetic Biology under the NEST Pathfinder initiative of the EU.
