PhD thesis

Sex chromosomes in willows

Evolutionary studies of the ZW sex chromosome system in Salix viminalis

2012 - 2016

I did my PhD thesis at the department of Plant Biology at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) in Uppsala, Sweden. My main supervisor was associate professor Sofia Berlin Kolm.

Master of Science

Chemodiversity of flavonoid compounds: Enzymes involved in the modification of the flavonol backbone

2009 - 2012

I obtained my degree as Master of Science in the study programm Molecular Biotechnology at the University of Heidelberg, Germany. For the thesis project I worked in the research group of Prof. Dr. Jochen Bogs at the Centre for Organismal Studies (COS).

Bachelor of Science

On the causes and effects of splice variants of mRNA coding transcription factors in flavonol synthesis in grapevine and A. thaliana

2006 - 2009

I studied Molecular Biotechnology (BSc.) at the University of Heidelberg. For the thesis project I worked in the research group of Prof. Dr. Thomas Rausch at the Centre for Organismal Studies (COS).
