The regulation of one-carbon metabolism and epigenetic dynamics

I studied biology in my bachelor’s and master’s at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (October 2012 – September 2018). During my studies, I put a strong focus on plant sciences and took the initiative to investigate plant metabolic pathways and protein allocation and their redox-based regulation. In October 2018, I joined the group of Dr. Martin Groth at the Institute of Biochemical Plant Pathology at the Helmholtz Zentrum München as a PhD student. My work is focused on the regulation of one-carbon metabolism and epigenetic dynamics in model plants subjected to variable growth conditions. Together with my colleagues, I aim to illustrate new mechanisms that enable organisms to memorize environmental cues and adjust to climate change, one of the biggest societal problems of our time.
