As a native North German, I grew up in the beautiful port city of Hamburg. After my school education, I had the opportunity to move from the sea to the Swiss mountains. An adventure that has shaped me until today.

From an early age, I was fascinated by the uniqueness and diversity of biology. I was lucky enough to complete my education as a natural scientist in molecular biology at ETH Zurich. The analytical scientific way of thinking helps me to analyze the big picture and make complex decisions in business challenges.

Every day at Piomic is like a new adventure for me. Through our work, we want to develop a therapy that is safe and effective, in order to offer a better future to all those in need and patients. You can feel this passion in working with such an empathetic and inquisitive team. As co-founder, I am very proud to be able to contribute to this vision.
