Personal details


After completing a master's degree in molecular microbiology at the University of Graz, I obtained my PhD in the lab of Prof. Giulio Superti-Furga at CeMM (Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences) in Vienna. During my PhD I focused on programmed necrotic cell death, employing chemical screening and mass-spectrometry-based pathway mapping to identify inhibitors and regulators of necroptotic cell death.
In 2017 I moved to the lab of Thijn Brummelkamp, where I am using haploid genetic screening to study disease-relevant signaling pathways.
