My goal is to get a better understanding of how the genetic regulation of the lipid production in the microalgae is affected by different environmental conditions. You cannot really see Nannochloropsis or other microalgae with the naked eye (they range in sizes from 2-100 µm).… Read More »

  In my PhD project, I have applied a new technology for future production of nanostructured metals. I have studied two different types of aluminium (aluminium containing magnesium and aluminium containing bismuth) with this technology. My goal was to find a suitable process for light metals having superior high strength combined with good deformability. Such… Read More »
