Center for Astrophysics


Dr. Corinna Kufner is a graduate from Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich (Germany). Her research is focused on the ultrafast photophysics of biomolecules in early stages of evolution, including RNA / DNA building blocks and the photophysics of oligonucleotides.

Her experimental background involves a set of spectroscopic techniques including ultrafast pump-probe spectroscopy, FTIR, UV/Vis, HPLC-MS, ESI and MALDI-TOF.

In the Sasselov Group, Corinna Kufner is in charge of the ultrafast pump-probe setups, leads the UV/Vis and FTIR experiments and is responsible for the management of the laboratories.
