Summary During my professional career I have been working with a number of different topics. During my PhD education I was investigating detailed problems in the field of biological wastewater treatment applied to biological phosphorous removal and control problems. Here I was making my first experiences with Computer Aided Process Engineering using and developing numerical models. Subsequently I have worked for more than 11 years outside the academic environment in the field of microfluidic research and development for life science applications. This included extended activities in the field of design,  analysis, prototype design, fabrication and test as well as project generation management and team management. Typical areas of applications have been the development of diagnostic devices for drug detection in saliva, cultivation of stem cells, in vitro fertilization and cell-based assays in the field of cancer research. Since 2011 I have re-joined my Almer Mata again. As a member of the Process Systems Engineering Centre, I am responsible for applications across all scales. This is including research in the field of microfluidics including e.g. biocatalytic reactions or classical catalytic reaction as well as full scale numerical simulation of the complex interaction between fluid dynamics and reaction kinetics.
