About

Personal data Date of Birth November 29, 1985 Place of Birth Vienna Nationality Austria University education 2009-2010 Diploma thesis at the Institute of Molecular Biosciences, group ofSepp Dieter Kohlwein; Title: “Fatty acid induced lipotoxicity in saccharomyces cerevisiae:an analytical approach” 2006 Completion of my first part of the chemistry study 2004 – 2010 Study of chemistry (diploma study) at the Karl Franzens University of Graz 1996 – 2004 High school at BRG Leoben Neu, Matura in June 2004 Career history 2010 begin of doctoral school 2009-2010 diploma thesis Career related activities and memberships Summer 2008 Working for the project lab at the Department of Biochemical Analysis and Mass Spectrometry, University Children’s Hospital Graz (Hans Jörg Leis); “Derivatization of vitamin D3 and its metabolite for GC MS quantitation” 2007-2008 Part of the product innovation project (Team Parasol) at theTechnical University of Graz sponsored by Philipps and presentation of the prototype at Technical University of Helsinki Summer 2007 Student researcher at Applied Biocatalysis Research Centre Graz, involved in purification of a D-threonin aldolase Summer 2006 Student researcher at ARP (Aufbereitung, Recycling und Prüftechnik Ges.m.b.H, Leoben), characterization of elemental compositions of minerals with atom absorption spectrometry Research interests I’ m especially interested in the field of biochemical analytic in combination with basic research. Yeast as a model system and the development of appropriate analytical methods give us the chance to better understand biochemical pathways. Fat metabolism is one of the important processes in eukaryontes, which is not yet totally discovered and needs more precise investigation.
