mentoring philosophy

Curiosity should always take the center stage in research. I brought together students with backgrounds in chemistry, engineering, physics and mathematics. This diverse backgrounds not only forces interdisciplinary collaborations but also stimulates an evidenced-informed learning environment, which is our foundation to spark curiosity. Being part of BRAINS center at UT (since 2020) and Karlsruhe Micro Nano Facilities in Germany (since 2021) help expanding our knowledge base.

we seek for:


with an interest in a chemical reaction networks. The research we carry out covers a wide range of experimental sciences (from organic synthesis to analytical chemistry, enzymatic assays, and surface functinalization). Where needed, mathematical modelling  (think of coding in Matlab, COMSOL, Python) is applied to guide our experiments.

Projects are available upon request. In addition to acquiring new experimental skills, the emphasis in our BSc and MSc projects is on stimulating the academic method of thinking and acting, and creating the important link to scientific areas related to out-of-equilibrium chemistry. To this end, projects/assignments/interships will be fine-tuned together with you. 


none at the moment


with demonstrable knowledge in physical organic chemistry. Experience in guiding Ph. D. and undergraduate students, and a proven record in participating in interdisciplinary projects, is preferred. 

Postdoctoral researchers are encouraged to apply for independent funding.
