Antje is a biologist with botanical and biochemical background. After finishing her studies she worked in several scientific projects. In her last three year project concerning human breast cancer she again realized that her main interests concern systematic botany and human use of plants for medical or nutrition purposes. She wanted to return to plant related projects and now works as technician in Plant Food and Hominin Dietary Ecology Group. She is mainly occupied with starch and phytolith analysis extracted from natural plants. In the future she will be also concerned with isotope analysis using mass spectrometry. Therefore she already made some experience in mass spectrometry during her last project by comparing metabolite profiles of breast cancer cell lines generated with GC-MS measurements.
