I studied biochemistry in Berlin and worked on the bacterium Deinococcus radiodurans at NASA Ames, CA for my master thesis. My interest lies in the field of astrobiology, which tackles the questions of the origin of life and the search for extraterrestrial life. This interdisciplinary research incorporates many areas of science, among them geology. I joined Don Lowe’s group in 2002 as a PhD student in order to study astrobiology-related topics in geology in conjunction with my background in bio-sciences. My research is focused on the affects of environment and biota on the development and ultimate morphology of microbialites.
