Jonas Schaub began working on his PhD thesis in Prof. Dr. Steinbeck’s research group at the end of 2019. His work focuses on the cheminformatic analysis of natural product spaces and the fragmentation of molecules.

Before that, he completed both his Bachelor’s and Master’s studies in Molecular Biology at the Westphalian University of Applied Sciences with a focus on bio- and cheminformatics. During this time, he worked on particle-based molecular structure representations, cheminformatic methods for the detection of functional groups in molecules, and the development of a computational information and analysis platform for lead discovery. His entire work was supervised by Prof Dr. Achim Zielesny, who is also involved in Jonas’ PhD project.

Besides science, Jonas is very interested in politics and (mostly science-fiction) literature, loves to care for his collection of house plants, and enjoys jogging and badminton.
