Max studied bioinformatics and genome research in Bielefeld and joined the Thorn Lab as a Ph.D. student in 2021. Previously, his focus was on molecular modeling. Now, he works on the so-called R-factor gap.
He already learned what it is like to be part of a young, scientific team as a member of the iGEM contest back in 2017. However, this time revealed also his favor of bioinformatics over working in the lab.
Even in his spare time he enjoys to program. If he isn't coding on his own game, he's usually playing pen and paper or board games or is climbing in the next bouldering gym.
