Personal profile

Research areas

We are the group working in the field of "Enzyme catalysis". In particular, we are focusing on:

1) Artificial enzymes.

2) New enzyme immobilisation, especially these using cutting-edge emerging materials and methods. 

3) Enzymatic biotransformation for novel organic reactions.

4) Novel emulsion biocatalysis, e.g., Pickering emulsions, polymeric emulsions. 


The highly motivated students are always welcomed for bachelor and Master Thesis. In case of a request, please contact us directly.
