BSc Chemistry, Karl Franzens Universität Graz/TU Graz; MSc Chemistry Lunds Universitet; PhD Organic Chemistry Lunds Universitet.
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. Following graduation, she was selected for the summer exchange program between the Graz University of Technology and the University of Novi Sad where she worked on the development of biosensors using nanotubes.
Michaela obtained a Masters degree from Lund University after which she obtained a PhD in Organic Chemistry from the same institution, where her research 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.
Michaela joined Potter Clarkson in August 2018.
