My formal background is that of a synthetic chemist in the field of organometallic chemistry. At the University of Bremen my focus lay on the reactivity of inorganic complexes with organic compounds, in particular transition metal complexes of Group 13 and heavy Group 15 elements based on an acenaphthene framework. I am familiar with laboratory work under inert conditions as well as analysis methods such as NMR spectroscopy (homo and hetero nuclear, 1D & 2D), mass spectrometry, UV-vis and IR spectroscopy.

My current project focusses on the synthesis and analysis of bismuth- and mercury-based organometallic compounds and hypervalent coordinated carbon chemistry.
