Chris grew up in the small town Pasching in Upper Austria that is “famous” for eliminating Werder Bremen in the UEFA Intertoto Cup in 2003. However, instead of starting a football career, Chris decided to study chemistry at the University of Vienna. After completing his bachelor thesis in radiochemistry, he shifted his focus towards chemical biology. For his master thesis, Chris joined the group of Karl Mechtler at the Institute for Molecular Pathology where he was working on mass spectrometry based proteomics. To further broaden his horizon he eventually moved to Berlin and joined the Hackenbees for his PhD where he combines his passion for chemical proteomics and phosphorus chemistry.
