I am an MD at the University Hospital for Children and Adolescents in Heidelberg, Germany, currently working as a postdoctoral researcher studying inherited metabolic disorders. I received my medical degree from the University Tübingen, where I was part of the IZKF research funding and received a DAAD stipend to study at Brown University. I completed clinical rotations in Germany, the USA, the U.K., China, and Switzerland. In 2021, I completed an MBA program at University of Applied Sciences Neu-Ulm.
