After her studies at the Justus-Maximilians-University of Würzburg, she completed her PhD. at the Technical University of Munich on the subject of the intake assessments of flavouring substances. Her work within the framework of the EU project FACET was closely linked to the safety assessment of flavouring substances in the context of the Union list in Annex I of Regulation (EC) 1334/2008. She is therefore very familiar with working with international working groups.


Her main focus is on advising national and international companies on scientific and food law issues as well as on supporting applications to the European Commission. In addition, she regularly lectures at conferences and leads basic seminars, e.g. on dietary supplements and food labelling. She also conducts in-house training courses in her areas of activity.
