About the Author

Inspired by natural products, their biosynthesis and their importance in medicinal chemistry, I started to gain a better insight into the total synthesis of these unique molecules. 

After my diploma thesis in the field of organocatalysis under the supervision of Prof. Rainer Mahrwald (HU Berlin), I worked on the total synthesis of complex polyketides during my PhD thesis under the supervision of Prof. Dirk Menche (University of Bonn). After a short research stay at TU Dresden in the laboratory of Prof. Peter Metz, I worked as a postdoctoral fellow with Prof. Pauline Chiu at Hong Kong University.

Since the end of 2021, I have been doing research in the field of antiviral nucleosides in the group of Prof. Billy Ng at CUHK.
