When I started my bachelor in biochemistry in Göttingen, I never expected to still be her for my PhD. My bachelor thesis was about antibiotic resistances regulated by a zinc finger transcription factor in the mold Aspergillus fumigatus. For my master thesis, I took another look at the regulation of antibiotic resistances. In this case, I analysed the adaptation of the pathogen Listeria monocytogenes to several disinfectants and antibiotics. During the pandemic, I also had the chance to work in a laboratory for cancer diagnostics at the Universitätsmedizin Göttingen. In general, I have a broad interest in medically related topics. So, it is not surprising, that the ability of flat worms to regenerate most of their bodies, deeply fascinates me. This led me to do my PhD in the Rink lab. In my studies, I will take a closer look at the polarization in planarian regeneration. During my free time, you can either find me with a book or a flute in my hand, on a horseback or high up while doing aerial silk.
