Forschungsgebiete

Mikrobielle Transformationsprozesse sind für den Verbleib organischer Verbindungen in komplexen System von ausschlaggebender Bedeutung. Eines meiner professionellen Ziele ist die Entwicklung und Anwendung neuer molekularbiologischer Methoden zur Charakterisierung und Quantifizierung von Mikroorganismen, die organische Schadstoffe in situ umsetzen. Im Fokus sind dabei insbesondere Techniken, die (1) eine Quantifizierung der jeweiligen Biokatalysatoren ermöglichen, und (2) Informationen auf Einzelzellebene liefern. In der Vergangenheit habe ich Beiträge zu Fragen des anaeroben Umsatzes chlorierter Ethene und aromatischer Verbindungen sowie zur Genomik und funktionalen Genomik Schwefelverbindungen-metabolisierender Mikroben geleistet.
