Christian Bech Rosen

Christian Rosen has been a PhD student in the Gothelf lab since May 2011 and postdoc since November 2014. His research areas include small-molecule organic synthesis and development of new methods for site-selective protein conjugation.

During his PhD, Christian spent 8 months in the group of Prof. Hagan Bayley at University of Oxford, UK. Here he applied biological nanopores for the site-specific detection of protein phosphorylation sites at the single-molecule level.

Christian Rosen has since March 2015 been a post doctoral fellow at Matt Francis’ Research Group at University of California, Berkeley. (
