CV / Scientific Career
I am interested in the ecology and ecophysiology of microbial communities involved in Ecosystem services such as the conversion of pollutants and biomass in soil, water and technical systems. It is my goal to address these processes from an ecological perspective and to propose ecological principles for environmental biotechnology development. Special emphasis is put on the link between microbial diversity in structured habitats and the reliability of their functioning. An ultimate goal is to propose biotechnological processes that are as self-sustained as natural ecosystems and their application for environmentally sound biotechnology.
