Research Focus

I received my Dr. rer. nat. from the Institute of Physical Chemistry at the Julius-Maximilians University of Würzburg. The title of my thesis, which was supervised by Prof. Dr. Friedemann W. Schneider, was “Das intramolekulare Deaktivierungsverhalten elektronisch angeregter Arylverbindungen: Fluoreszenzspektroskopie und semiempirische Modellrechnungen”. After joining the research group of Prof. Dr. Tim Clark at the Computer-Chemie-Centrum of the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, I finished my Habilitation on “Molecular dynamics simulations to investigate structure and properties of small organic molecules and biopolymers”.

My research activities focus on the application of comparative modelling techniques and molecular dynamics simulations to investigate structure, properties and function of biomolecules.

Since 2013, I am holding the position of the Managing Director of the Central Institute for Scientific Computing (ZISC) at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (see the campus map).
