Research focus

I am a biochemist by trade and work on CO2 fixation via formate as an intermediate. Here, I am interested in the reduction of formate to formaldehyde as well as its downstream conversion into longer-chained hydrocarbons. I approach this topic from an enzyme engineering perspective, generating and optimizing molecular catalysts for specific reactions rather than creating full metabolic pathways. Most of my focus lies on (semi-)rational enzyme design and therefore necessitates the development and application of high-throughput screens for the evaluation of large enzyme libraries.
