Background and activities

NMR spectrocopy on biological macromolecules

Research Interests

My main research interest is NMR-spectroscopy, especially NMR on biological macromolecules

We are currently working with enzymes active on polysaccharides like cellulose, chitin and alginate. Furthermore, we are also applying enzymes for extracting and tailoring polysaccharides from seaweed to produce new biomaterials. Our approach is to characterize an enzyme's biochemistry and biophysics using NMR and a wide range of experimental techniques. Moreover, we aim to apply enzymes to modify the substrates they are active on and thus create new biomaterials with tailored properties.

Some of the enzymes we are working with are lytic polysaccharide monooxygenases (LPMOs), carbohydrate-binding modules (CBMs), and alginate modifying enzymes. Moreover, we're studying algal polysaccharides such as alginate, laminarin and fucoidan.
