I graduated with a Diploma (equivalent of a Thesis Master degree) from the University of Cologne (03/2005-09/2009).

I'm currently working on my dissertation in the group of Dr. Axel Jacobi von Wangelin in the Department of Chemistry after I finished my Diploma Thesis in September 2009.

Diploma Thesis (03/2009-9/2009) - "Optimized reaction conditions for iron catalyzed cross couplings"
PhD Thesis (since 11/2009) -"Iron catalyzed cross coupling reactions"

I received a DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst - German Academic Exchange Service) fellowship, which has enabled me to spend a research period of four months at the University of Missouri with Prof. E. Bauer (05-09/2010).
