Research Interests: • Regulation of plant biochemical pathways to investigate central metabolism, biosynthesis of secondary metabolites, signalling and stress response
• Biosynthesis and analysis of secondary metabolites from different bacterial strains as new therapeutic agents by „combinatorial biosynthesis”
• Metabolomics to unravel molecular mechanisms involved in Parkinson's disease
• Biomarker identification in breast cancer
• Metabolomics Changes in Ciliopathy: The role of the nephronophthisis Anks6 module in development and tissue homeostasis
• Analysis of the mitochondrial metabolome smORF gene mutants in yeast
