Algae Cultivation Manager at one • five, Germany

I am a microalgae biologist that works at one • five, where we aim to develop the next generation of sustainable bioplastics. I hold a Ph.D. from the University of Essex in which I investigated the growth response of different algae species to wide temperature ranges. During my time at Essex, I focused on competition experiments to learn whether single species performance can predict competitive outcomes.

Before my time at one • five I also gathered algae industry experience at Tomalgae in Belgium and at a Spirulina farm in Germany.

I am interested in all types of algae and hope to understand them as much as possible by exposing them to differing growth regimes and analyzing their cell physiology and molecular constitution.
