I am a research scientist in the Microbiology group at BASF. My expertise is the microbial production of secondary metabolites. I have more than 5 years of experience in engineering Actinomycetes and Pseudomonas strains with a strong focus on biosynthetic cluster expression.
Exploiting native endowments by re-factoring, re-programming and implementing novel control loops in Pseudomonas putida for bespoke biocatalysis. The EmPowerPutida project aims to engineer the lifestyle of Pseudomonas putida to generate a tailored, re-factored chassis for the production of so far non-accessible biological compounds. Pseudomonas putida is a bacterium with a highly versatile metabolism, including the capability to degrade or produce organic chemicals.
