I study the anaerobic degradation of biomass and the microbial community responsible for the process. Through deep characterization I will try to identify the complex community structure and interactions between microorganisms, and how the microbial community responds to processing conditions. The goal is to develop improved processes for microbial generation of biogas.
I started my PhD in March 2013. Svein J. Horn is my main-supervisor, Phil Pope and Vincent Eijsink is co-supervisors.
