RNA Editing; RNA Folding; Transcriptome
The main focus of my research are noncoding RNAs. I study their genetic blueprint, evolution and transcription as well as structural features and folding kinetics.
I am teaching Bioinformatics 101, advanced RNA Bioinformatics courses and two sections of the lecture series Computational Concepts in Biology.

Activities at the University of Vienna
From 2014 to 2019 I was a representative in the Faculty's Conference (Fakultätskonferenz) at the Faculty of Chemistry (University of Vienna), for the term starting October 2018 I was elected speaker for the scientific personel.
In Mai 2018 I started a career network for female chemists "WoChem - Women in Chemistry".
