Young and multidisciplinary researcher investigating the production of bioactive compounds in plants


Plants are the world's greenest chemists and provide humanity with a wide range of medicinal compounds and industrially relevant molecules. Unfortunately, many of these valuable chemicals occur in small amounts or in complex mixtures, which precludes their efficient utilization. I investigate various aspects of plant specialized metabolism, focusing on how these chemicals are made and moved around within their host plants. Apart from generating basic scientific knowledge, I am committed to using our findings to solve pressing problems in agriculture, chemistry, and medicine.
