Research Interests:

In the context of my master thesis I got the opportunity to investigate the travel behavior of patients after allogeneic stem cell transplantation. Focusing on this complex subset of patients I realized the need for further investigations to prevent them from potential infectious complications. Considering vaccination as a crucial element I started my MD thesis in the team of PD Dr. med. Dr. phil. Adrian Egli, where I support his group with a focus on clinical data.
