I joined the CMC group in 2019. My research interests are in the field of the computationally investigation of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). For my bachelor thesis, I focused on structure prediction of copper paddle‑wheel MOF structures with symmetry-reduced linkers by applying the Reverse Topological Approach.

Currently, I investigate the breathing phase behavior of flexible MOF systems. Based on Force Field calculations , I simulate the structural transition from the open to the closed pore form by exposing MOF nanocrystallites to an external pressure.
