in 2007 i started my independent junior research group at the leibniz institute of plant biochemistry in halle, germany. my lab studies hormone responses in the model plant arabidopsis thaliana and related brassicaceae employing mainly genetic approaches such as forward genetic screens or making use of naturally occurring genetic variation in the global gene pool of arabidopsis.

in real life i am very much interested in figuring out how to 'hands-free-noodle-feed' my son without getting completely tomato-sauced myself ...
