Research Interests

  • Biological leaching by acidophilic and neutrophilic microorganisms
  • Application of GeoPET to bioleaching systems to:
    • monitor heavy metal mobility
    • visualize microbial colony distributions

Projects

Ongoing Projects

  • EcoMetals - Quantifying bioleaching kinetics and efficieny: (3D+t) visualising ore metal mobilisation from Blackshale by means of PET. A joint German-French research project, BMBF-/ANR-funded: Innovative eco-efficient biohydrometallurgy processes for the recovery of strategic and rare metals, 2014-2017

Completed projects

  • Master's thesis - Abiotic and cell-cell-communication related influences on the biofilm formation process by Acidithiobacillus ferrivorans in comparison to Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans
  • Bachelor's thesis - Investigations on biological degradation and sorption behaviour of TDCP in river water-sediments
