Warm Welcome to Our New Team Members in 2024

We’re excited to announce the arrival of several talented individuals who are joining our team this year:

  • Lorena Selak (AU/SDU) – As a postdoc, Lorena will be exploring the dynamics of methane cycling within marine sediments, bringing valuable insights into this crucial environmental process. She is on a joint postdoc between Aarhus University and the University of Southern Denmark.
  • Adrienn Groza (Radboud Uni) – Joining us as an Erasmus MSc student, Adrienn will delve into the microbial key players within MEC-AD reactors that treat digestate, aiming to enhance our understanding of microbial contributions to renewable energy processes.
  • Sebastian Rotenberg (SDU) – As a Bachelor’s student, Sebastian is set to investigate how Methanosarcina acetivorans respond to various stressors through changes on its cell surface, a study that promises to deepen our grasp of the adaptability and resilience of methanogens.

We are thrilled to have Lorena, Adrienn, and Sebastian on board and can’t wait to see the exciting scientific discoveries they’ll be making.

Welcome to the team! 🎉
