Background and expertise
Nadja has a diploma in chemistry and during her PhD in physical chemistry specialised in the application of microemulsions. Throughout her many years of research on microemulsions and the characteristic physical properties of the bio-surfactants studied, she gained extensive experience in the application of bio-surfactants in the food, detergent, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. With her investigations on the use of bio-surfactants in microemulsions as reaction medium, she opened a new route towards green organic closed-loop process control.
