BIOGRAPHY

I am a Junior Professor and a Team Leader at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems, Magdeburg (MPI Magdeburg) and the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg (OvGU Magdeburg). I have many years of research experience in several different areas including computer-aided molecular design of solvents, ionic liquid based sustainable process engineering, multiscale process modeling and optimization, as well as artificial intelligence and machine learning. I have published more than 30 articles in highly recognized journals. I serve as an Associate Editor for two renowned journals. I am an International Scientific Committee member for ESCAPE-31 and Editorial Board Member for BMC Chemical Engineering.
