In addition, her research concerned sourdough microbiology, characterization, and selection of microbial starters for nutritional, functional, and technological improvement of fermented foods.
Mr. Philipp Demling, a Ph.D. student in RWTH Aachen University, Aachen, Germany. His research focuses on the development of a fermentation strategy for the biochemical production of biosurfactants, especially rhamnolipids. Another focus of his study is the investigation of the ability of the obligate aerobic P. putida KT2440 to cope with fluctuating dissolved oxygen tensions.
