Julia's Academic CV

Since October 2017
Professsor (W2) for Chemistry (since January 2021 permanent), associated to the elite-study Master course SynCat of the Elite Network Bavaria (ENB)

November 2012 -October 2017

Junior research group leader (Liebig stipend from Nov. 2012-June 2014, since July 2014 Emmy-Noether-group leader) at the Unversity Hamburg, Chemistry

May 2009 –May 2012
Research Associate at the POC, Cardiff University (UK), in group of Prof. Barry K. Carpenter.
Studies evolved around the experimental and computational analysis of non-statistical dynamic effects of highly reactive intermediates, i.e. the Wolff rearrangemnet and 1,3-dipolar cycloaddtions.

August 2005–March 2009
PhD with highest honors at the TU Dortmund in the group of Prof. Martin Hiersemann.
Main topic of the thesis: the aliphatic Claisen rearrangement:
(a) combined comutational and experimental work on substituent and solvent effects on the reaction rate of the uncatalysed Gosteli-Claisen rearrangement.
(b) development of an organocatalysed Gosteli-Claisen rearrangement.
(c) Studies to elucidate the catalytic cycle of the Cu(II)-catalysed Gosteli−Claisen rearrangement via DFT calculations and in situ IR-spectroscopy.

Diplom in Chemistry with the grade "very good" („sehr gut“)
Dipoloma thesis at the TU Dresden ("Substituenten und Lösungsmitteleinflüsse auf die Umlagerungsgeschwindigkeit von 2-alkoxycarbonyl-substituierten Allylvinylethern") under the guidance of Prof. Martin Hiersemann

Research interests:
mechanistic analysis of non-MEP behaviour
funny radicals (EPR-spectroscopy) and
all kinds of peculiar chemical behaviour.
We make use of computational chemistry (BOMD, QM, MM-MD,...)
and experimental tools (ns-pump-probe, EPR, classical POC methods...) with the aim to understand,
the how and the why molecules undergo the transformations they do and
to then harness that knowledge to develop our models of predicitons further.
