Katharina worked as a student assistant at the Thorn Lab. Normally, she studies molecular biology at the University of Hamburg. In her master's thesis, which was put on hold by Corona, she is working on the interruption of bacterial communication.
Since the lockdown, she has been digging around in databases and analyzing sequences. She never thought she would get so close to structural biochemistry and finds this development very exciting. As a future science journalist, she hopes to dedicate her life to reading and writing soon.
Until then, she can usually be found behind a novel or in her home lab (cooking).
