I am a postgraduate research student (PhD) at the Research School of Chemistry (RSC) at the Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra. I am a member of Assoc. Prof. Luke Connal's research group at where I am currently developing a new method of additive manufacturing / 3D printing and functional materials for it. The additive manufacturing method is suitable for fabricating printed electronics, electrode materials, energy storage devices and medical implants. My area of research combines advanced manufacturing, electrochemistry, polymer chemistry and electronics.

At ANU, I am also a member of the Research School of Chemistry HDR Representative Committee, which is organizing numerous events and activities for students and academics throughout the year. I am also undertaking laboratory demonstrating in the Advanced Physical & Materials Chemistry course.

Before starting my PhD at the ANU, I was working as a Research & Development engineer in a spin-off company from Juelich Research Centre, Germany - Is It Fresh. During my time there I have worked on  printed electrochemical "freshness" sensors and developed several products. I have graduated with a Bachelor and Master of Science  from RWTH Aachen University in Germany. Both my degrees are in chemistry with a focus on mesoscopic materials. During my studies I have gained working experience at the DWI – Leibniz Institute for Interactive Materials, where I had a pleasure to work on several industrial projects in the area of materials development for water purification systems; switchable water and oil repellent materials and smart detergent additives (in collaboration with Henkel AG).
