I am a post doc at The Department of Biotechnology and Biomedicine, Technical University of Denmark. I obtained my PhD degree in 2019 under the supervision of Maher Abou Hachem at the Technical University of Denmark. My PhD studies focused on the enzymatic degradation of xylan and mannan by the human gut symbiont Roseburia intestinalis [1, 2]. My research currently focuses on enzyme discovery for degradation and/or detoxification of pharmaceutical contaminants in waste water in collaboration with The Department of Environment, Technical University of Denmark.
I have contributed to the structure determination and biochemical characterization of:
- CBM86 Roseburia intestinalis L1-82 xylan binding module, RiCBM86, from the modular xylanase RiXyn10A  Family First.
