Professor
T107 Bioproducts and Biosystems

Research on bio-based material science and surface chemistry of lignocellulosics. Efforts are laid on finding novel application possibilities for the main plant polymers; cellulose, lignin and hemicellulose. The approach to reach these goals is to focus on fundamental insight in surface chemistry of biomaterials at the nanoscale, with a special focus on interaction forces.
