My work as a PhD student in the Theory group of the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research began in November 2006.

My current research topic is material properties of hexabenzocoronenes. I am focusing on the alignment of the columns in the hexgonal phase and am currently working on comparing the director fluctuations obtained from simulations with those predicted by continuum elastic theory.

In July 2006 I received my Physics diploma from the University of Goettingen. For my diploma thesis I studied the mechanical properties of spider dragline silk at the Institute for x-ray physics of Prof. Dr. Tim Salditt.
