Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

Research

My main interests in research has been the chemistry of wood, especially chemistry of lignin, and also other components of wood (cellulose, hemicelluloses). More recently I have expanded my knowledge in chemistry of hemicelluloses, and their use as emulsifiers.

I have also interest in using enzymatic modification for transformation of biomaterials, especially using laccase for oxidation of lignin. I have also been a researcher in projects involving lignin composites and wood modification.

In the future, I would like to expand my knowledge and research further on phenols and polyphenols in plants used for food materials.
