Board certified gynecologic oncologist. Since 2012 senior physician at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf and head of the certified colposcopy unit - one of the biggest in Germany. My research fields are HPV-related diseases with a focus on prophylactic and therapeutic vaccines; my particular interest is however vulvar (pre)cancer where I could add profoundly to the current clinical and basic knowledge with my work. As a member of national and international guideline groups I have also developed recent guidelines on the management of vulvar cancer.
