JOSHUA SCHULT – PHD STUDENT
IMG_9715_edited_edited.png

What brought me here?

The increasing interest in chemistry during my last years of high school, the good reputation of the university, and the proximity to my friends and family led me to decide to study chemistry in Freiburg. During my Bachelor's and Master's programs, my interest in organic chemistry grew. Therefore, and because of the innovative ideas and methods at the Schnitzer Lab, I started my PhD and am currently working on target-selective peptide catalysts.

What makes me happy?

I enjoy spending time and having fun with my friends, whether it's hiking, watching sports, or having a drink. From time to time, I like being active, such as playing football, but sometimes I also love to just relax and watch some episodes of my favorite TV series.

What is my current smartphone background? Why? 

My background alternates between pictures of the Star Wars character Boba Fett and my beloved cat. Being with my cat, or at least seeing him, always makes me happy. Seeing Boba Fett reminds me of my wonderful childhood and youth, where I spent a lot of time with my brother watching these movies.
