Obtained his B.Sc in Molecular Biomedicine in Bonn. Got keen on how metabolism and immunity sense and shape each other during his M.Sc. in Life and Medical Sciences. Performed his Master Thesis in Christoph Thiele’s Lab at the University of Bonn studying how macrophages affect adipocyte metabolism. Completed his Ph.D. in Eicke Latz’ lab on the role of macrophage metabolism in shaping epigenetics and the transcriptional response to LPS. Furthermore has been working on western diet and lipid metabolism and their links to macrophage biology.
