Hi, I am a postdoc in the Biomolecular Structure Center at the University of Washington in Seattle. I am working with Ron Stenkamp in a co-operation with Pat Stayton's group in the Department of Bioengineering.

My home town is Hameln - the city of rats and pied pipers - a nice old town in Germany. Starting out as a chemist I studied at the Georg-August Universität in Göttingen. My phD supervisor was George Sheldrick (author of the SHELX program system) and I learned a lot about crystallography - however I was also synthesizing my own organometallic compounds and characterized them with various methods.

Now I am working in the field of protein crystallography:

The streptavidin-biotin complex is an interesting model system for studying high affinity protein- ligand interactions.

More about my project.
