Expertise: interaction analyses of transcriptional regulators, analysis and preparation of diagnostic markers for Helicobacter pylori infections Yersiniosis and collagenoses, carbon catabolite regulation in Gram positive bacteria
I studied chemistry in Erlangen and started research on carbon catabolite regulation in Bacillus megaterium in my diploma thesis. During my PhD thesis I was concerned with quantitative analyses of protein-protein and protein-DNA interactions of CcpA, in vivo- and in vitro-characterization of point mutants of CcpA and coeffectors and I contributed to the structural analysis of different CcpA complexes. During a postdoctoral appointment I focused on interaction analyses of PrfA, a regulator of

I am a postdoc in the lab of Rick Lewis working on the biophysical characterization of protein-protein complexes involved in central carbon metabolism.
