I am working on the development of methods for the discovery of epitopes, which can be used for immunotherapy against cancer, autoimmunity and infectious diseases. Specifically, my PhD project focuses on finding novel treatment opportunities against gliomas and glioblastomas. Another main aspect of my research is the dynamics and mechanism of proteasome-catalysed peptide splicing.
I am using a variety of computational approaches to answer my research questions; sometimes you can also find me pipetting in the lab.
