Hello! My name is Anna Weimer. I have a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Management from Justus Liebig University in Giessen and a Master's degree in Biotechnology from the University of Lund in Sweden. The topic of sustainability is very important to me and has accompanied me since my early childhood, as I grew up on a small farm. This shaped my thinking about circular economy and therefore I am very passionate about the idea of transforming manufacturing processes in a profound way by the application of biotechnology, reducing wastes and pollutant and safeguarding our natural resources. Here at iSBio I will work with the soil bacterium Pseudomonas putida for the production of bio-based products from lignin-based raw materials. I am very much looking forward to new challenges, the cooperation with my new colleagues and my time at iSBio!
