Larissa studied chemistry at Freie Universität Berlin, Germany, having worked in the groups of Prof. Dr. Hans-Ulrich Reissig on carbohydrate-mimetics synthesis, Prof. Dr. Beate Paulus on DFT calculations of crown-ether/ammonium pseudorotaxanes, and Prof. Dr. Christoph A. Schalley on multivalent supramolecular complexes. She was awarded a fellowship of the German Academic Foundation to do her PhD studies on the thermodynamic analysis of multivalent crown-ether/ammonium systems in the group of Prof. Dr. Christoph A. Schalley. In 2016, she obtained a Dr. rer. nat. in chemistry. During her following postdoctoral stay in the group of Prof. Jonathan Nitschke at the University of Cambridge (2017–2020), she was working on stimuli responsive metal-organic cages and combining cages with classical supramolecular crown-ether/ammonium motives. She was funded by a Feodor Lynen Research Fellowship of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. In Summer 2020, Larissa moved to Bonn to start her independent career working in the field of systems chemistry and out-of-equilibrium self-assembly with a Liebig Fellowship (Fonds der Chemischen Industrie) and later the Emmy Noether Programme (German Science Foundation).
