Assistant - Patents

Part of the firm’s chemistry team, Michaela is based in the Copenhagen office and has a strong technical and research background.

Her PhD in organic chemistry focused on the development of iridium catalysed cycloadditions and also on the development of C2-symmetric disubstituted dibenzo[a,e]cyclooctatetraene and pentalene ligands for the use in asymmetric catalysis. 
She was selected together with two other PhD students to represent Lund University at the Global Young Scientist Summit in Singapore in 2013. Michaela presented her research at different international and national conferences and co-authored several peer-reviewed articles. 
Her research also includes the development of biosensors using nanotubes, which she worked on as part of the summer exchange program between the Graz University of Technology and the University of Novi Sad.





Michaela read chemistry at the University of Graz in a joint program (NAWI Graz) between the Graz University of Technology and the University of Graz. She also obtained a master's degree from Lund University after which she obtained a PhD in organic chemistry from the same institution.
