Why does revenge feel sweet? Do fruits and vegetables protect against cancer? Why are antibiotics losing their power? At the root of any article lies a question that begs to be answered.Because I am interested in those answers, I studied molecular biomedicine and became a science journalist. At the moment I am working in Berlin, writing articles, profiles and interviews for numerous newspapers and magazines, moderating discussions and working as an editor in the science section of the daily newspaper „Der Tagesspiegel“.On this website, I want to share with you some of the fascinating answers and discuss some of the interesting questions, I encounter in my work. I will publish most of my articles, and explain what is new in some of the areas I watch with particular interest: molecular medicine, neuroscience and synthetic biology.

As a science journalist, I write about experiments all the time. Time, to start one myself.
