Elisabeth was born in Stuttgart. She studied Molecular Science at FAU Erlangen and did her Master thesis with Professor SvetlanaTsogoeva. Before finishing her degree, she had the opportunity to do research in the labs of Prof. Sznitman at the Technion (Israel), Prof. Borbas at the University of Uppsala (Sweden) and Prof. Casnati at the University of Parma (Italy). She joined the Delius group in July 2016 to work on the synthesis of novel HER photocatalysts. When not in the the lab, she enjoys alpine skiing, baking cakes and travelling.
