commenced his undergraduate studies in mechanical engineering at TU Dresden before moving to the University of Bayreuth in 2009 to study biology. In 2013, he completed his bachelor dissertation in the Dept. of Biochemistry under the tutelage of Prof. Dr. Wulf Blankenfeldt on the subject of “Characterisation of the methionine-R-sulfoxide reductases MsrB and fMsrT1/C1 of the single-celled parasite Trypanosoma cruzi”. He has been studying for the master’s programme “Biochemistry and Molecular Biology”, also at Bayreuth, since 2013.
