Michaela Pieszka studied chemistry at the University of Ulm (Germany) and got her degree in October 2015. Her Master's thesis was titled "A Supramolecular Approach for Folding of Polymer Chains" and was realized in the group of Prof. Dr. Tanja Weil. She started her PhD in the same group in February 2016 in Ulm and since June 2016 she's continuing her work at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (Mainz, Germany). The main focus of her research is organic synthesis of stimuli-responsive building blocks and application of these molecules in protein modification and peptide synthesis for building up responsive biomaterials.
