Research Interests:

  • Regulation of plant biochemical pathways to investigate central metabolism, biosynthesis of secondary metabolites, signalling and stress response
  • Biosynthesis and analysis of secondary metabolites from different bacterial strains as new therapeutic agents by „combinatorial biosynthesis”
  • Metabolomics to unravel molecular mechanisms involved in Parkinson's disease
  • Biomarker identification in breast cancer
  • Metabolomics Changes in Ciliopathy: The role of the nephronophthisis Anks6 module in development and tissue homeostasis
  • Analysis of the mitochondrial metabolome smORF gene mutants in yeast
