Personal profile


The field of my research is within biochemistry, molecular biology, bioprocessing, gene technology and synthetic biology. I use these tools for the engineering of living organisms, microorganisms, fungi, and plants. My main interest is to use biological systems to produce food, nutrients, materials and energy in a sustainable way. Through the use of waste and leftovers from agriculture and manufacturing, it is possible to reduce their impact on the environment while finding more sustainable alternatives to replace compounds that would otherwise be produced using fossil carbon.
