Great to have you visiting. Feel free to explore our pages and to find out about us and our research. Do not hesitate to contact us in case you have any questions or you would like to learn more.

Who we are

We are a research group in the field of Biophysics and Physical Chemistry with a focus on ultrafast laser spectrosocpy. We are located at the Biophysics Insitute of the University of Frankfurt at the rapidly evolving Science Campus Riedberg. Corresponding to the interdisciplinary nature of our research, members of our group have very diverse backgrounds. Students and PostDocs from chemistry, physics, biology, biophysics, biochemistry and material science have been working in our lab.

What we do

We investigate molecular structure, dynamics and interactions giving rise to exciting phenomena at the intersection of chemistry, physics and biology. To this end we develop novel spectroscopic techniques that combine structure sensitivity with high time resolution. Many experiments are based on transient multidimensional infrared spectroscopy and the use of non-canonical amino acids as tools for studying protein biophysics.
