Research interests

My research area is microbial ecology of anaerobic environments, with particular focus on engineered systems such as anaerobic digesters, wastewater treatment plants and bioreactors for the microbial conversion of organic waste into valuable products. The research aims to optimize biotechnological processes based on complex microbial communities and to harness the metabolic potential of anaerobic microbes for novel bioprocesses in the context of the circular economy. My research group combines anaerobic cultivation and lab-scale bioreactor operation with molecular methods for community profiling and multi-omics approaches to explore metabolic functions and interactions in natural, enriched and engineered microbial consortia.
